Well said Eric! We got our 300-gallon rain tank from Bob and loads of great horse manure compost. He had a such a big heart!

Very sad to hear of Bob Willis' passing. He is a renewable energy leader and pioneer, founding Sunrise Alternative Energy. He was an encouraging force for a lot of people and was a very kind man. He will be greatly missed.

Bob is an amazing man! He was a wonderful husband and father. He loved unconditionally, always encouraged us, and was always FOR us. He loved to laugh, listen, and talk. He knew how to enjoy life. He loved people so much. He spent his life pouring time and love into his family and into his many friends and spiritual sons and daughters. He was married for 31 years to wife Sherry.
