Bob and I shared many hours together while in High School. I remember when he bought the 55" Chevy and I remember the trip we took in it to Iowa. Stopping in Kansas City and staying in a hotel. In Iowa we worked several days bucking bales of Hay for a friend's father's farm. I remember when he started dating Norma and how happy she made him. I am glad they are both together again. See you both later.

High school memories of Bob were all good. He was always a kind person to all. I enjoyed visiting with him at one of our Class of 1957 reunions. I remember him as a calm, peaceful man. He will be missed.
