Bob worked for me as a Gerber Sales Representative until his retirement . What a wonderful man. We had the opportunity to go to several Garage sales during our lunch breaks. Bob was quite the negotiator. I remember Bob picking up a Coke wooden crate full of small bottles of alcohol. He asked the price on several different brands. Most were 10 cents to 30 cents each. After some discussion, Bob looked at the man and asked if he would take 5 dollars for the entire bunch. The man said ok and was glad to get rid of them all in one sale. Bob paid him, picked up the wooden case and said under his breath, "let's get out of here". We nearly ran back to his car. I asked why the rush? He held up one specific bottle and said with a huge smile, "this bottle alone will sell for $75 or more". Bob is now with the Lord. May all of us remember just how special of a man he was.
