One Condolence for Robert William “Bob” Thon III

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob and his family. Just found out of Bob’s passing and think of the many great memories we had over the years. I was fortunate enough to work with Bob at Maryland National Bank and First Citizens Bank and always enjoyed his upbeat attitude and always had a smile on his face. My thoughts and prayers go out to Carol and his family and I am grateful to have known Bob. I will miss his upbeat attitude and smile.
