    Very, very sad to hear

    You know those people who you can tell are very smart, experienced and have so much knowledge after reading only a few of their posts- he was that to a tee

    Knowledge of the old machines is becoming a lost art and he will be sadly missed.

    X2 for loving the "later Bob" at the end of each post

    Suddenly my "problems" that I had a work today are nothing - puts everything back into perspective and makes you look around and enjoy what we have today cause we don't know when it's our turn.

    Welcome to the forum Triscuit. I am sorry to hear of your fathers passing. My father was a field service man for Crothers in the 70's and I think I recognize their logo on your dad's coveralls. Your dad knew the Caterpillar machines expertly and his knowledge helped many of us on this forum. May he rest in piece.

    Over an over, Bob pulled THE answer out of nowhere, with no extra verbiage. Later Bob. You're missed.

    Thanks to metalman for finding out and letting us know. I have worried before what happened when somebody that is a regular on here just suddenly drops off the radar.

    I wonder if we could do something like add phone numbers to the info on us that the moderators hold, so if we disappear, somebody could check on us.

    You've never lived until you've almost died. Freedom has a flavor that the protected will never know.
