From Randy Willis:
Bob was an accomplished saxophonist and became a high school music teacher.
I talked with Bob's cousin recently, and he said that one night in the early 1990's, after playing saxophone at a local Waco nightclub, Bob went home to get his 'good' saxophone for an after hours jazz session, and was involved in a fatal single car accident while returning to the club.
