Bob was my friend, my law partner and one of the most decent people I have ever known. I have so many fond memories of our enjoyable times together. Whether discussing business or pleasure he was always the same: bright and inquisitive, very funny and always interested in the other person and how they and their family were doing. Bob truly cared about people and people could tell that his interest in them was genuine. That's what made Bob an Endicott icon, a successful lawyer and a loyal friend to so many others. It was my honor to know Bob and to have worked with him for so many years. I have never known another person of higher character and trustworthiness. God Bless Bob Thomas.
