I worked with Bob in London Zone and after my retirement from GM he was a great help to me in the development of dealer training aids. Always a pleasure to be with. RIP Bob. My condolences to Pat and the family.

So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I worked with him for a number of years while he was in Brand Management at GM. He was always a pleasure to interact with. My thoughts are with you, his family.
