I spent many very important days with Mr Bob in the summer of 1973. He taught me how to fish in an old farmers pond near falls city. I caught 8 bass that day and the memory of that summer when he would come in to the mobile station to see grandpa Jack and me is something I'll always hold dear. He taught me patience and honesty. He was always there if I needed a man to talk to. Rest in peace brave HERO !!
