I did not know Robert but I have read the tribute to his life and his history. He was an avid Ham Radio Operator and had the call sign KZ1B for over 30 years. I now hold that Call Sign KZ1B which is an honor for me to have now. Robert I wish I could have met you and we seem to have many likes in common.

Dear Lee and Cheryl,
I was so sorry to learn of Bobs passing. He was a
loyal and sincere friend of my late father John Cook.
They worked together @ WJAR for many years and
continued their friendship into retirement.
I have many fond memories for Bob riding his bike
up on their back lawn in Narragansett ;and,visiting
for hours. There was great conversation, laughter
and my mothers huge sandwiches. We all enjoyed
his visits.
My sympathy to all.
Sincerely, Kathleen

I was so sorry to learn of Bobs passing. He was a
loyal and wonderful friend to my late father and
mother throughout the years.
Bob would often stop at their home in Narragansett
while on his way to the post office. I can see him now
pulling up on his bike, ready for great conversation,
maybe a sandwich and laughter!
My sympathy to all.

Sincerely, Kathleen
