    It is with great sadness that I have to inform everyone that Robert (Bob) Blosl has passed away. Matt and I have both spoken with his wife Zora who is in total shock and completely devastated as the rest of us are. When I find out more information I will post it as this has just happened in the past couple of hours. I have become very close with Bob and he held a wealth of information and was more than willing to help anyone. He was the best cheerleader that the Rhode Island Reds EVER had. May he continue to cheer them on in Red Heaven.

    This is terrible news. I was so looking forward to meeting him in person next month at our club's shows. He was so nice to speak with on the phone. The poultry world will be much poorer without Bob in it. Prayers to his poor wife Zora. [​IMG]

    Dear Jesus, bless this man, our dear friend Bob, who has given so much of himself to help others.
    In Jesus' name.
    Amen.

    This is a very sad day for the chicken world, Bob was a great man, he had a huge heart and was always helping new people. I know he is in heaven and someday I will get to meet him. Prayers for his wife, family and friends. KISS I will always remember that Bob.

    Sincerely, Melissa Ahlers

  8. Interesting that this was Bob's last post on this thread. I have been lurking here for a couple of years learning, making notes, earmarking posts. I made my decision on what breed I wanted to work with and secured my stock last spring based on a lot of his insight.
    My thoughts are with his family both in blood and in the world of Large Fowl Poultry,,,,,,,let's hope we can keep "kicking the can" in his memory and keep the education and history going forward.

    Amen.

    I'm so sad. He didn't know me but I listened to and respected every word that he wrote. I saw the news on Facebook and was hoping it was a mistake.

    May we do him proud and keep his legacy going strong, he wouldn't want/have it any other way

    KISS
