I was so sad to hear of Bob’s passing. What a great guy and great dancer. I’d sit out many songs just so I could watch him glide around the floor. I learned a lot from Bob and felt he could dance forever. A perfect gentleman who will be sorely missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

I will miss this wonderful charming gallant sensitive funny and kind man....he and I danced together for many years After not seeing him for a few years i called to meet up with him...... maybe 2 months ago because i would travel anywhere he was just to dance with him he said he had plans to go to a movie and so i missed out on seeing him one last time...he said he was fine this message of his passing i just received today I am so sad He and i talked about you and how proud he was of you i could see the love in his eyes ...i am so you must be ...he touched my heart in so many ways....we would laugh so hard while dancing i would have to run off to the ladies room...and come back and keep laughing such a gentle man ...i wish i could hug him one more lucky you were to have as a dad......i wish i knew about his passing sooner to be able to meet you and your son he is dancing with the angels !!!

My dear friend, Bob Nielsen & I were close friends and great tennis partners and
competiters. He was always trying to get me to go dancing with him. We had
many lunches together at Greg's in Watertown. It is ironic that he took very
good care of himself: what he ate, and how he excercised, etc. I was fortunate to have spent his last week with him in our home before his wonderful son, Eric, had him flown to Florida to be with him (Eric) and his grandson ( Brandon). That is just what Bob wanted. I am sure that he is
dancing with the angels in heaven.
