The service station manager and unofficial patriarch at Gold Star for 25 years. An honest man and a great boss, Bob may just be the nicest guy in the world, always ready with a smile and a kind word. Content with his life, Bob starts each morning in his small back office with a crossword puzzle, and goes home each night to his longtime girlfriend who he is hoping to make his wife. Life is good; but when one of his own betrays him, his unfailing belief in second chances is put to the test.
