I had wonderful memories of a fine man. May you Rest In Peace Bob Bolt.
I had the honor and privilege of working with Bob in Ramos Arizpe, Coahuila, Mexico, from January 1980, until December 1982. Bob was a talented, hard working, dedicated GM executive and a good friend. We shared our love of a good Jack Daniels cocktail. RIP Bob, RIP my friend!

My late father Al Pauly Jr spoke fondly of Bob often and their good times at the Elks.....I bet he and dad are having a time of it together again now.
