Bob's life work, dedication and impact on bodybuilding, health and fitness has been a source of inspiration to tens of millions of people and his legacy as a pioneer in this field will continue."[/i]
This is very sad news to me. Bob was by far my best client, and a true English gentleman. I had the privilege of working with Bob starting back in 2002 after I sent a pack of my art samples to him for consideration in his magazine. I never really expected a response, but 3 days later Bob called me on the phone personally, and there began a 10 year working relationship that not only gave me great pleasure drawing bodybuilding art for MuscleMag, but also finely tuned my skills as an illustrator because of the expected quality of the publication.
I'll miss you Bob.
