I was saddened to hear of Bob's passing. Though I had only met him a handful of times, I heard countless stories of him while I was growing up. Many of my Dad's stories of his youth started out with, "Me and Bobby Semple....". Dad always spoke of Bob with the utmost respect. My sincerest condolences to your family.

Bob was one of the first people I met when I was publisher of The People's Defender in 1998. We met at the Caramel Festival in Winchester. Bob introduced me to several folks around the county. He was always cheerful, witty and very knowledgable about the community. Adams County has lost a great person.
