Bob was a great friend to my father, Warren Lester. I worked for him in High School at Riverton Avi-lease, the Fixed Base Operator at Riverton's Airport. He was a great boss, and became a friend of mine as I became an adult. He will be missed.

Blue skies and tailwinds, my friend!

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds -
and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of -
wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence.
Hovering there I've chased the shouting wind along
and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air.
"Up, up the long delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
where never lark, or even eagle, flew;
and, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
the high untrespassed sanctity of space,
put out my hand and touched the face of God

Cody and Robyn,
I am in New Mexico with an appointment Friday noon for my annual Medical update. I don't see any way that I can make it back to Riverton by Saturday morning.
However I will be with you in Spirit at that time!!!
May God provide you with HIS comfort, knowing that Bob is now at rest!!! I'll check in when I get back.

My memory of Bob was when he gave me a "ride" to Laramie when he was going that way for work in the Beechcraft Bonanza. We used to drive pretty fast, but 200 mph in the plane was faster! Our families celebrated Thanksgivings for a number of years with two other families. I have too many memories of fishing, work & gatherings to list.
