Passing of Bob Hill - navarch2

Just learned about this.  Bob posted here often about his modern day Penn Central layout.

Oh no, I really liked following his modern Penn Central concept.  Way too young.

RIP Bob.

My condolences to his family, may he rest in peace. 69 just doesn't seem fair, almost like he 
was robbed of enjoying the last 1/3 of his life.

Loved his concept & modeling. Really looked like an amazing layout he was buidling up.

Gonna miss the fella. I'm frankly amazed it's been over a year since his last regular comments on Trainorders.com

A very sad loss. I will miss posts and his helpful information on his layout construction. Sure seems to be a loss of a lot of good people in the modeling community lately.

Prayers for his family.  He was also a wonderful resource for marine modeling and helped me with some information a few years ago for my port area.

Sad loss, way too young.  It is hard to believe we will see no more posts about the modern PC, which I thought was a neat concept for a layout.  

Best wishes to his friends and family in a dark time.

Yes,  I liked his concept and seeing the progress on the layout. Anyone know what the cause of death was?

I sold Bob some Holgate and Reynolds brick sheets a few years back. We met at the Springfield Mass. show. Really nice guy and we are both PC fans. I loved seeing his photo's of his railroad as it progressed. I tried contacting him earlier this year to see if we could meet at Springfield but I never got an answer. I'll miss his posts and glad I got to actually meet him. My condolances to his family. ----- Ken
