    RIP MetalTwister - Bob

     



    Just now I noted a posting on the Instagram account for Metaltwister, who we know as Bob, and who recently relocated from SOCAL to Licking, MO saying that Robert Vincent Engel, Jr, aged 64 and often called Bob had passed away in his shop from natural causes in a peaceful and fast way on July 19th. This was posted by Bob's son, saying that there would be a Celebration of Life held in the desert at a later date. I'm sad to see this notice, considering how happy Bob had been with his relocation to the relaxed, small town Missouri life.

    RIP Bob. https://www.instagram.com/p/CDTylMDnGJJ/

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    RIP man. Just a reminder for the rest of us to make the most of what we've got because ya just never know.

    It's much easier to promise someone a "free" ride on the wagon than to urge them to pull it.

    Luck occurs when preparation and opportunity converge.

    For us, and for those we care about too, Uncle Bob! Things can change, literally in a heartbeat or with an unexpected medical report.

    Wow - so very young. God must have had a project for him in heaven. Bob was such an encouragement to so many here (and elsewhere to be sure). A godly man who for sure who will be missed by many but has made heaven a richer place by his homecoming.

    Prayers and condolences to his family.

    That is so sad, I enjoyed listening to him talk about how much he loved Missouri versus southern California. RIP Bob, you're with the Lord now which is much better than Missouri !
