    What a wonderful man..as a young black male in my early twenties Bob taught me a lifelong life lesson..we had a conversation about raising children.( before i became a father)..Bob said Fred let me tell you...know who their friends are...know where they are...be involved in their lives and activities and keep them busy...because if you don't someone else will....i never forgot those words and have shared them with young people along my journey...i am a proud father of 2 sons & 1 daughter...2 college grads & 1 son trying to find himself...Fred jr....was working in one of the malls a few years ago and Bob recognized his name...he asked if i was his dad..my son gave me Bob's # and we talked a few times... I was glad to hear that he remembered me...when my phone quit on me all of the numbers didn't make it over..so we lost touch.....So all that being said "God Bless your Soul Mr. Tharp"...May you reap the rewards of a life well lived....!!!!!....

    What a guy! If you were ever Bob's friend, you were ALWAYS Bob's friend! I worked for him for a time at DuBois Chemicals then reconnected years later via email and Facebook. Bob was especially good at keeping in touch. I will miss him terribly.
