We lost my father on 8/5/16. He loved pool, pool cues, and AZB. He spent a lot of time on here and really enjoyed the beauty of custom cues. For those of you who knew him, you know what a special man he was. He will be forever missed.

His obituary can be found here:

I barely knew your father as I only met him in the past year, but it was clear he was an asset to the world of billiards and I was sad to hear of his passing.

My sincere condolences to you and the rest of his family. May he RIP.

This is a quick note to let the world know Bob is certainly not forgotten,
and discussed/remembered by friends on a regular basis..
Carrol, Justin and the entire family, remain in our thoughts.

I was shocked when I heard this last year. When I was in Tucson 4 years ago, I paid a visit to your lovely home and met Bob. At that time I was a foreign graduate student and I'm still grateful that Bob showed me some of his collection and gave me a big welcome. I still have his number in my phone when I came back to China. That afternoon in his pool room will be in my memory forever and may him rest in peace.
Best wishes to your family.

Sorry to hear of Bob's passing. I had a few emails with him about 10 years ago and I believe I sold him a cue too. He had such great enthusiasm for pool and cues. I think at the time he was excited about taking delivery of a new Dennis Searing cue.
