Thank you, Bob, for all you are. It was a great privilege to meet you in the early days at Texaco Nanticoke. You were always willing to expound with great humour and incredible knowledge about any process vessel we happened to meet under! I was pleased to share my knowledge with Rob and John as summer student employees, as well. My condolences to Anne, Elizabeth and Jane, and extended families.

You are a very fine person,Bob, and a pleasure to know. May you rest in eternal peace, my friend.

To the Humpheys Family

I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Uncle Bob, so lucky to have fond

memories of him. Uncle Bob was so kind and had such a pleasant smile. My brother Bruce and I would enjoy the laughs and the way all his brother's and

sister's would carry on, they had a lot of fun together on family gatherings. On behalf of Bruce and my mother Laura hugs to all and thinking of you at

this sad time.
