Sad news indeed.
Rest in Peace.
This is a discussion on Robert E. Ford (acparmed) 1952 - 2006 within the Bob & Terry's Place forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Sad news indeed. Rest in Peace....
I didn't get to know him here, but he clearly had an impact on those that did, rest in peace and condolences to his family.
This was very sad news, RIP Bob.

He was young. How sad....
Rest in Peace Bob...

Farwell, acparmed. May your powder always be dry and your mags always loaded.

Rest in Peace and may God be with his Family.
I've known Bob about 12 years, and I will miss him very much. A man with integrity, style and a sense of humor like no other. A gentle man and a warrior in the same slight package. A heart as big as all outdoors. A serious student in the art of self-defense with the spiral tube. He was serious about his knowledge and his skills. We attended LE instructors class together and had a great time. A week ago he received his dream blaster back from Chuck Larsen and the smile on his face was worth a million dollars. I'm sorry he was not up to taking it out that day and shooting it. More than all of this he was My Friend and I know the halls of Valhalla are open and waiting for him to arrive with a heroes welcome. Chuck
P.S. Chuck Larsen did a hell of a job getting Bob's blaster back when he learned about what was going on with him. If you feel that you could drop him a line and tell him thanks for a job well done. The look on Bob's face was well worth the wait. It was his dream gun.
Chuck - relieved to see you managed to log in OK - seemingly without having to re-reg.
I envy you that 12 years - I have wished distance had not been the obstacle to meeting Bob - I know full well a meeting would have been icing on the cake. Just chatting on the phone as we did was a pleasure, even if only over a year or so.
I wrote Chuck Larson a polite but strong letter about Bob's 1911 to try and help him get the darned thing back - in light of events I think I must write Chuck to not only thank him for the job well done but for somewhat reaming him a ''you-know-what'' - all of course to try and help Bob.

OH NO! He will be sorely missed. Vaya con dios, Bob. When I go "home," we'll carry on where we left off. Prayers up for the family.

Bob will be missed. His family is in our prayers.
May God grant peace and comfort to his family.
May they see him again in the comforts of our heavenly fathers arms.
Very sad indeed. Death is a very difficult thing to accept and deal with. Thoughts are with Bob's family and friends---may he find peace wherever he is.
