    I just learned of Bob’s passing. I bqualiought his 2001 Jaguar years ago. In the two times of several hours each to buy the Jag, I found him to be one the of most personable men on the planet. He was a super nice “Quality” man. I also called him for about the first 6 month on upgrading things on the car and still own it. His family lost an extraordinary dad and grand dad who I bet was his children’s friend as well. Sorry for his loss. His life was well lived. We can only hope to be a little like Bob Wheeler and touch others as he surely did!!!
