Bob always had an eye for detail and could create or build something out of nothing. 
With those skills in mind, Handyman Bob, LLC was born. He was an avid snow skier years ago but fishing, especially fly fishing was his most loved sport. 

Bob never met a stranger.  He could talk to anyone and by the end of the conversation he had a new friend.  He was always known for his quick wit, his infectious smile and his kind and compassionate spirit.  He loved to make people laugh.

Bob also was a Third Degree Mason and a Lodge member in North Carolina.

“When I die and go to heaven, I am going to get the job as the cloud arranger.”- Bob Pollock
