  1. My father and I knew Bob as one of our favorite customers at Kies Supply in Waterloo. He was a very fair and honest electrical contractor. I always enjoyed the stories that my father (Barney), and my grandfather (Art Kies) told about Bob. Bob sent dad a birthday card in February (dad is 94) which dad cherished.
