He was diagnosed with cancer about 6 months ago but treatment seemed to be going ok, i just think he took a turn for the worse on saturday. I spent my early days of following the city, over 30 years ago, going to games with bob and his brother brian, bob always had a smile and a word for everyone, a real nice man, i still can,t believe it,s happened!!!!
