Buzz and I are so deeply saddened by the news of this great loss. He was my first teacher/coach of golf as a young teenager. I was blessed that he continued his teachings and life lessons later in my 40’s. I will always admire and respect Bob and am grateful for having the experience knowing him. We are deeply saddened to miss his memorial as we are out of town. God Bless you Bob Harrison and prayers and blessings for his family.

There were quite a few Evans Scholars under his watch. He helped quite a few young people.

Bob: I was shocked to hear of your passing. We were born just four months apart. You have been a great friend and I will miss you as will all of the golf community.

Bob was an institution at Clovernook CC. A person, who my father (Dan Sr.) considered a dear friend at the club, as well as highly respected teacher & golf professional to many. My father really enjoyed playing with Bob, and conversing on the range. Bob always said Hi to me, and was a welcoming ambassador for the club. His presence will sorely be missed, as well to all those young golfers, he developed and worked with.

I was so deeply saddened to learn of Bob's passing and of his six month battle with cancer. In the short time that I have known him, he made a tremendous impact on me in many ways. He gave me the confidence to get back into the game of golf in my 50's, while encouraging me all the while, and sharing such colorful stories that stuck with me from his years as a golf pro. He was one of a kind and was a true legend. I always picture him with that styrofoam cup of coffee in his hand and an iron in the other with his yellow golf shirt an khaki pants which had seen a lot of wear over the years. So kind, so patient, always a grin on his face. You are all truly blessed to have had him as your father and grandfather. I know how proud he is of all of you and he always talked about his family. I am praying for all of you and hope that the fond memories will help to heal you in the difficult days ahead. Much Love and Sympathy, Julie Whitney
