This is very sad
I was fortunate to have spent over an hour with him, one on one, at an airshow in Arlington, WA.
My father had also flown the Aero Commander, although not quite like Bob did.

He was the most interesting man I ever met, ( I'm not sure if he liked Dos Equis XX )

I was also very fortunate to meet him but for only 2 minutes it was by chance we were walking opposite direction to each other in a long hallway at the convention center in New Orleans, LA and about 100' away I recognize who he was! He was very professional and cool.

Sorry hear
Ken
