Sadly I am reporting that Bob Wilkins passed away this morning.  He was a great asset and resource to the TTAI and fundamental in making it what we all enjoy and benefit from today.  Much of any success which I enjoy today I certainly attribute to many men and women who led before me.  As a young man getting a start in taxidermy I like others stood on the shoulders of giants.  Bob was one of those Giants.  All matters of business and creativity were easily sorted over a beer with Bob, and no answer was ever a long trip around the bush.  Tomorrow will be sadly different.

Very sad news.
Bob and Dottie were some of the first taxidermists that I ever met, way back in the day when I first joined the TTA.
Condolences to Dottie.
RIP Bob.

We lost 2 great ones in the past couple of weeks. We will miss Bob with all our hearts.  This man always had a big smile to go along with his big heart.  God speed, my friend.  Tell the other Bob we all said hello.  I wonder if God let's you tell great 'stories' in heaven?  If so, Bob and Bob will have everyone in stitches!

Spent my whole life lookin' back
 Not lookin' ahead to see
 Trying to keep my feet on track
 Doin' what was expected of me
 Kick my shoes off so they can't trace me
 Leave no forwarding address
 Before they all drive me crazy
 And I leave 'em all in a bloody mess

I remember Bob well. We had some long discusions about taxidermy politics.  He was a great man and will be missed.
