Judy/Molly –

Bob was my supervisor at U.S. Customs in Oceanside, CA in the early 90s. He was a very experienced federal investigator (from his time in Detroit, Los Angeles, and San Diego). For all things considered, Bob was pretty laid-back and even tempered. He was quick to tell a funny story (usually about something that happened to another agent).

I remember he would often run before work in the morning, and follow it up with his regular breakfast – a donut and Diet Coke. While eating his breakfast, Bob would complete the New York Times crossword puzzle in ink (before the Internet or google).
