Dear Alvarez Family - I want to send my deepest sympathy for your loss. Bob was a wonderful teacher, friend and sales manager for me when I worked at Fairway Chrysler in the mid 1990's. I have terrific memories of his wonderful sense of humor, his caring for others, his teaching, sense of fair dealing and love of family and friends. And one can never forget that positive attitude and terrific smile. I am very proud to have had the opportunity and experience working with Bob. I think of him often and know you will always cherish him in your memories. May God bless and be with all of you until you meet again.
