Last month, the community of amateur astronomers lost one of the “good ones” when news came that Robert “Barlow Bob” Godfrey had passed away.

Hi Phil,
Nice touch to honor Barlow Bob in this way. He got me started on Solar observing, and I am most grateful to BB.
Certainly, Barlow Bob helped to "turn on" many observers to the Sun, he will be missed.

Thanks, Phil. Yes, Bob will be sorely missed at NEAF as well as the other conventions and meetings he frequented. I always looked forward to viewing through his Bob-O-Scope every chance I had.
