Bob Shaftoe, Rest in Peace

Posted on December 24, 2012 at 11:10 AM

Most of us knew and admired this stoic British ARBA Judge.  He was a friend, mentor, advisor to so many over the years.  His passing leaves a  void that is not easily filled.  He was one of the 'old timers',  a judge from 'back in the day' and he could tell you stories about people, shows, conventions, times and places.  And we would listen.....  He judged with professionalism and integrity.  Behind the show table, he not only judged, but taught as he went.  We learned so much from this Judge, with the staunch British accent, and the easy smile.  We say, not only Rest in Peace Bob, but a Giant Thank You!!
