We both worked with Bob McCabe at Crouse-Hinds. He was a wonderful person and we enjoyed working with him. After retirement, we used to go to lunch once a month with Bob and Janet and the Vassallos. We have many great memories and pray that God will give Janet and the family comfort and peace.

I worked with Bob McCabe for a number of years at Crouse-Hinds Lighting Products Division located in Liverpool. Bob was a class act. Always the gentleman when we communicated and he was someone that I looked up to and respected.

Bob was my boss at Crouse Hinds for many years. I had and still have great respect for him not only as a boss but as a caring individual. He was interested in the welfare of his associates and taught me much during our stay there.
