He served as a member of the Board of Directors and Board of Trustees of the Community Hospice since 2006. In addition, he served on several Board Committees including The Human Resource Committee, The Growth Committee, Development Committee, and served as Chairman of the Finance Committee. Bob was an originating sponsor of the Annual Charity Golf Classic for Hospice and received the Philanthropy Sponsorship Award recognizing him for his contribution to the Hospice Program over the years. Bob also accomplished a lifelong dream and received his private pilot's license in 2010.

    Bob was known for his compassion and kindness towards his clients and to their tax and accounting needs. He would constantly extend himself on their behalf working long hours to provide quality, accurate and prompt service. More importantly, he was a person with impeccable integrity and someone you could always trust and depend upon.
