I served with SSG Finnell in Germany and after we returned back to Fort Stewart. He was a great man. Surprised me and my boys with his skills on a skate board. Rest In Peace brother.

I served with Bob in both Germany and Georgia. We argued once in a while but he was one of the smartest guys I've ever known. He could do anything with a computer. Rest in peace brother

I served with Bob, Charlie Company 1st Platoon. He was a good NCO but a lousy coffee maker. You are missed.

I served with Bob both in the 317th in Germany, and again when I was with the 11th Engineers at Ft Stewart. He was always a character. I remember him getting ahold of old computers and "revving" them up so the unit had more than the one allotted to it at that time. I am saddened by his passing.
