Uncle Bob taught me the joy of coin collecting and took me to an awesome coin show in Singapore. I'll always remember the trips out West and meeting him at Zion national park with Aunt Barbara and my parents. The times in Florida at their condo were special, especially watching the NY Giants win the Super Bowl; and going swimming in earlier years. God bless him for being my uncle.
