  1. Bob and I were great friends in High school (OHS class of ’75) and after graduation met up with him in Denver CO at the DADC where he graduated. He was a groomsman in my wedding, and since moving to AZ, I lost touch with him until a few years ago. He was a good guy who was a lot of fun to be with. We loved driving the back roads of NY as teenagers looking for old cars. We were into “Barn finds” before it was cool! In fact we found his 41 Chrysler in a barn. My condolences to his family. Godspeed Bob!

  2. I’m so sad you suffered with your disease, that you are gone…to a better place I pray. Drink your beer, watch over your family…the adjustments aren’t easy even though it is life’s plan.
    Our families did so much together, although I hung with Barb…you being that little brother ; ) So many growing up stories…
    Remembering just now at the dinner table how we would get into trouble with the black olives playing “bacabaca”. Love you & will miss you cousin! Prayers to Michelle and family
