Dear Scott, I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad. It's been a rough year losing both your parents. As much as we know they are in a better place, it's still hard letting go. My thoughts and prayers are with you & your family! Hope you are staying well! Please feel free to reach out as it would be nice to touch base after many years. God Bless - Diane

I remember caddying for Mr. Hickinbotham many times at Buttes des Morts, usually with his friend and golf partner Rollie Hophensperger. They were both pretty good players and both were looked upon by we caddies as a good track. He was a gentleman, I am sorry for your loss.

Scott, Barb, Toni and to the rest mourning Bob's passing, may all reflect on the good times, his wit and smile, good cheer and good nature. He may be gone but is not forgotten. The Radio and TV repair shop was our base of operations downtown, as a place to go at the end of the Ave., before going back up the street on the other side. Many an afternoon was spent popping in and out. And on the home front, Wow, did Bob ever get mad when Michael accidentally poked a pool cue through the panel in the drop ceiling. At first we thought it was funny, but we quickly learned, it sure wasn't. I was sure glad it was Michael's cue and not mine, that skewered that ceiling tile. Honoring his service to our country, his leadership as a small business owner in the community, and a good neighborly guy, I will recall the good times we shared, so many years ago.
