From Ed Moran: Bob and I were contemporaries in the 1970s when I first got to know him. I had a customer who was irate because he had done extensive due diligence to buy a small subsidiary of a listed company only to have the seller walk at the last minute. I spoke to Bob about this; he spoke to his customer; the deal went through and my wife got a dozen long stemmed roses with a note, “Your husband is the greatest”. I never shared the roses with Bob but it became a running joke.
     We kept up our friendship over the years and he often recommended me for various workout positions. Jay Alix would throw large cocktail parties once a year and Bob and I usually found each other and talked for a while over a drink. He was very active in the American Bankruptcy Institute, and that provided occasions for us to get together as well. I last spoke to him several years ago as he retired to his home in Rhode Island. We promised to stay in touch but, as too often happens these days, didn’t. Damn, that one hurts. A good man.
