Bob Fincham tribute from his students

Fiddlegal08(8)July 13, 2012

If you haven't seen it, there's a very sweet tribute to Bob Fincham done by his students in honor of his retirement. Their invention landed in my hometown!

That was too cool! What a neat tribute from his students. Apparently they have a great deal of respect for Bob as that was not a cheap project. Thanks.

You can teach science, and you can teach the love of science.
Looks like Bob did both. A rare talent.
Congratulations Bob! A job well done.

What those kids did speaks volumes about the man. I had teachers you wouldnt fly a kite for. Kudos to Mr. Bob Fincham!

That was great! Congrats to Bob - now he can really focus on educating all of us in Conifer U. ;^)

This touches me simply because my mother was a teacher and it's clear from watching it that his students LEARNED and appreciated what Bob had to offer. It's also clear that Bob is one of the 'cool' teachers and one that students were happy to see was on their schedule.

Way to go Bob, and the great students who made this, a great tribute indeed.

I saw this a few weeks ago on Facebook and want to say once again: happy retirement and you've done well.

What a great effort for a remarkable man!! Having met Bob (only once) and having thoroughly enjoyed his informative tales of conifer growing and exploration, it is not hard to understand why his students displayed such creativity and obvious affection in sending him on the path to the next stage of his life. A most inspirational and charming man :-)
