The Junior Grand Warden is a quiet fellow who admits that he is not a golfer but plays at the game for the enjoyment golf was meant to be. While he won't be around slapping your back or boasting about his own accomplishments, Bob has a demeanor that wears well when you get to know him. He first sought fraternal fellowship as a member of Boston Chapter, Order of DeMolay, and it inspired him to become an active Master Mason.
