I had the wonderful opportunity of working with Bob at Mayo Yarns. But I had the pleasure of getting to know Bob many years before then when he was at Macfield. He was a true gentleman and would do anything he could to help you. We moved to Greensboro in the mid 1990s and Bob and Anne made us feel like we were home. They were the absolute best people. Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob’s family. A true Southern gentleman is our lost but Heaven’s gain. With our prayers, Cindy and Bruce Crumbliss 877 Wellstone Drive Chattanooga TN 37405
