I remember working with Bob at the Beaver Valley Power Station, Unit #1, when the security was provided by Burns Security...always such a pleasant guy, made everyone around him laugh. He was such a sweet person, you could always tell a problem to, and he would try and work out a solution with you. I remember we called him: "Nick-Nock", or sometimes: "Nick-Nick". Was really surprised to see that he had passed. I am sure he will always be missed greatly. My condolences to his family.

I remember Horse very well. He was very kind to me when I was a young kid who wanted to basketball on courts of Monaca. He would always let me play, even though I was not that good. He never criticized me. Praying for your family.
