I still hope this is not really him, but I fear it is. This really sucks.
We had our ups and downs but he really was an OK guy. He will be missed.

Harry sent me a PM at Holts to give me a heads up.

This is some ****y news for sure.

RIP B4T, you were a good sport and stuck to your views regardless of how oddball we told you they were.

This is sad to hear. Remember to take the time to build the relationships that actually count, and that is not the ones with our customers.

I never actually talked to him but we PMed a few times. He was always willing to help or tell me what he knew about whatever I asked him.
He was especially helpful with any Generac questions.

I too will miss him and can only hope he's resting in peace!

Life is short, we should all treat each day as if it was our last!

I talked to Bob on the phone, he helped me with my first standby generator install. I did talk to him one more time right before he left this place, and he sounded strange like something was up. Really sad to hear.

RIP.
When I lived on the Island I would see his van on Sunrise Hwy. every now and then. Over 20 years ago. Weird did not know it was him till a few years ago in a PM when I brought up some of my old employers out there.

Me too Pete

When Mgraw sent me the link I did not want to click on it, so I gave it some thought for a few minutes, well I knew I had to click and did so, I read it and there is not much info at all, you would think they would do a short writeup about the man.

So after more hesitation I called the number and asked if he was the owner of 4WayElectric.

After a short discussion she asked for my name and number and said she would call back---------30 minutes later she confirmed it was Bob

I hope she was full of Bull, but I cannot see why she would do that.

Very sad news indeed, and thanks to mgraw and Harry for doing the research, though I am sure we all wish the outcome could have been different.

As others have said, life is too short to hold grudges, (especially in regards to an online forum) and B4T was one who never seemed to let things on here get him down, though he took more than his fair share of flack from some people.

He will be missed.

My guess is the funeral home would know. They are right next door to B4T's home.

It's both odd and sad that there isn't anything under the "Obituary" heading in the link on Bob. Not a single word about who the man was, what he did, who he left behind, organizations he might have belonged to, military record if any, etc.

I did a search on several engines and couldn't find anything.
