"I first met Bob Sweet in 1977 when his plant was on North Street in Bedford, PA. At that time his equipment and formulations were fairly crude; his puller was an old tractor pulley. Since then Creative has come a long way to a leadership position in the composites industry. One of my favorite stories was when I invited Bob to a dinner meeting in Bedford. He asked if he could bring a few of his team to the meeting. I said sure. When I arrived Bob had invited his entire first shift! I will miss Bob; rest well old buddy."

"Bob valued and respected the worth of others around him, and encouraged them to be the best they could be. I worked for Bob 29 years and he always said work and make decisions as if you own the company."

"I met Bob many years ago as a young salesman calling on Creative Pultrusions. The first time I met Bob, I felt like we had known each other for years. He always made people feel comfortable and he had a great big smile that could light up a room.
From the very first time I met him, he made me feel like part of a group, part of a team, part of a company, and part of his extended family. He unselfishly invited me to spend time with him and others when he didn't have to. That was the kind of man he was.
Bob never had to say any specific words to me, but in a subtle way he was my cheerleader and he encouraged me to be my best. The last time I spent with Bob was impressionable, and he will be missed greatly."

"They asked me the first time I met Bob Sweet...it was at a Chestnut Ridge home basketball game and Bob would always sit on the home side in the first row. Bob would talk to me during the JV game and I developed a special bond with Bob so I would always enjoy our conversations during the JV games and he would tell me before I departed for the locker room to get ready for the Varsity game these words...'Go give them hell kid!'. Bob was like a father to me and I will always cherish the memories & life lessons he taught me, plus ever grateful for giving this kid a chance 29 years ago on the CP Team and believing in me. Here's to Bob Sweet R.I.P!

"Bob Sweet would bend over backwards to help you. He was an awesome boss miss all the picnics and finishing trips we would have. He will be missed thanks for all the great years with CP."

"Although I did not get the opportunity to know Mr. Sweet well, I feel I got to know the type of person he was by the legacy he left at Creative. He will be missed by many."

"The Bob Sweet that I knew was understanding, compassionate, reasonable and very smart. I wish that I had been able to spend more time with him."
- Guy Kenny
"I met Bob when I was 16 years old and my first time out of Brazil. I was never treated so good as I was at his home and his CP family. We had very good times together on his boat, fishing at lakes and working.. "
-With love Daniel Pilz
"Yes, going back to the time together, we had just great moments. First sailing, second sailing, the other moments were like the others.
- Hug Geraldo Pilz
"A fantasic person and I will never forget his kindness and support during the time I was associated with CP. I still have a CD that he gave me of organ music and sadly I couldn't share his love for it. My children then and now adults drove me crazy playing the CD on a daily hahaha. Much love and happy memories of a great and personal loving being. He will be missed."
