I am stunned and greatly saddened by what must have been Bob’s sudden passing. I was out of town last week, but had shared a cup of coffee with Bob at his neighborhood Starbucks just the week before. We originally met in the Inns of Court in Carmel Valley, but would see each other virtually every morning during our mutual stop at the Starbucks before work. He had shared with me that he was seeing a specialist for headaches, but never mentioned or appeared to be seriously ill. To the contrary, we talked about our usual subjects –politics, our pending cases and the upcoming college football season.
He was obviously a very bright man, as well as a bright shining light who still had much to offer the world and those around him including me. My sincerest prayers go out to his family at this difficult time.
