Sad news...

November 9, 2020 · in News · · 43 · 2.6K

Hello, I'm P38J's (Bob) son Bob Jr. I regret to say you've lost one fine modeler, as my father has passed on from this life. I know he would frequent this site for ideas/inspiration from all of you and maybe strut his stuff from time to time. He will be missed and I appreciate the joy your models have given him over the me, I've seen a lot of them as he would just LOVE to show your works when they would blow his mind.

Thank you and prayers,

  1. Sad news indeed. My condolences to you and your family.

  2. Condolences to you and the family.

  3. My deepest condolences to you and the family Bob. Your father was not only a gifted modeller but also a very eclectic one. He will be missed here also.

  4. I always enjoyed his comments here, which were always interesting and useful, and I particularly enjoyed his compliments of my work, because they always revealed someone who took the time to really look at and see what he was commenting on. His work always demonstrated his attention to detail. I'll definitely miss him.

    I hope his journey across the bridge was an easy one. My regards to all of you in his family.

  5. A very nice soul, always supportive to his fellow imodelers. He will be missed.

  6. Never an unkind remark from Bob. Sorry to hear the news. Peace to your family.

  7. I never really know what to say to someone when I hear of your loss. I only know I do feel for your loss and just say you can take comfort that he is an better place, and I am sure he will be missed.

  8. Damn only 68. Unreal. Bob was a helluva fine builder, and one of the nicest guys here. Man , he will be missed.

  9. I'm so sorry to hear this news... My condolences go out to you and your family.

    Bob was a very nice guy, and he never had a cross word to say about anyone or anything. Back in 2012, I lost my Dad. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about him. It was very hard for me to cope with this loss for a while. You and your family will have similar feelings.

    In time this will become a little easier for you, as time does indeed heal all. Time will lessen the pain you feel now, and you will never forget him.

    He was one heck of a nice guy, and he will be missed. We will keep you guys in our thoughts and prayers.

    RIP Bob... 🙁

  16. My condolences to you and your family, Bob Jr @p38j
    I am relatively new in this site; however, I had the pleasure to "meet" your father here.
    We had some nice conversations about modeling stuff, ideas, opinions etc.
    What really striked me was his kindness and utmost politeness.
    It is easy for "us" out here to express consolation words to you...
    I just hope he did not suffer.
    He for sure is in paradise now.

  19. Bob Jr, I'm so sorry to here of your loss, both for you, for your mother, and the rest of your family. I know nothing can really help, as I lost my father suddenly at the end of September.

  22. So sorry to hear of your loss. Like so many here have said, it is terrible to lose your father. When I first re-entered the hobby I was afraid to post any photos because I didn't think mine could compare to anyone else's. Your dad's kind words let me know I had skills worth developing. I'll never forget those simple words. I can only imagine how many memories you have. Prayers for you and your family.
