Condolences on Bob's passing. Though he really wasn't my brother, I always felt like he was an older brother to me. My husband (at the time my fiance) was in the Navy when my senior year prom was held and couldn't get home to take me. Bob offered to take me and we had a great time. He took me out to eat at a nice restaurant, bought me my first White Russian (drink) which he had to finish for me. Bought me a wrist corsage, went to the prom and post prom, to a party at the prom king's house, then to Toni Kottwitz's for breakfast. Toni was dating Jerry's brother Larry, and his sister Pat was there too. We hung with them the entire night. Got home around 7 the next morning. He also took me out driving when I had my temps. It was stick shift so it was more like a game of leapfrog. LOL It was a cool, red Chevy convertible. I think an Impala? He let Jerry and I use his Mustang when Jerry was home on leave. He was always very great to me. I spent many summers at his and my sister's place in Milwaukee. My first time was to spend the summer and help take care of their newborn, Tina. I've always felt as if she was my little girl. I could go on and on, but will cherish all the memories I have of him and his family from when he was my brother-in-law. 76 was way too young to go, but I'm sure he left many memories with all those he left behind.

My sympathy to Bob's family.
I can remember my youthful memories with Bob. We would sneak with Julia in the closet to eat Auntie Margaret's Christmas cookies when they lived on 26th & Cherry! He would come out to Butler for the CYO dances, rock and roll was popular then. Many good times and early memories.
