I shared this with Mary, but I also want their kids to know. Bob had pneumonia in the Spring he was a Senior in high school, I thought he was going to die & was so scared. He pulled through, obviously, and wanted to be in his senior class play. So we would sit in his light blue car and I would coach him his lines & in a short time he had them down pat. He was always kind to me, and would take Dwight & I to the root beer stand in Rushford if he was going or riding on his motorcycle. Cheryl

Rudy & Donna. Sorry for the loss of your brother, Bob 🙏🙏

Bob always had a story to tell, especially about our younger years, such s roller skating in Peterson school gym, or maybe the summers he worked for my dad on our farm (while still in high school). As I said, he never failed to come up with a story, and would chuckle when he'd made his point. May you rest in peace, neighbor.
