In a statement, Hubbard Products paid tribute to Bob’s knowledge and enthusiasm for pragmatic solutions to commercial refrigeration requirements. This, it said, had earned him a high-level of respect within the industry and the high regards of colleagues and customers alike.
“We are sad for the loss of an exceptional individual who helped the company achieve many milestones. Our condolences go to his family at this sad time,” the company said.
The ceremony and the funeral will take place under Covid-19 regulations at a date yet to be announced.
