So sorry to learn of Bob's very recent passing. Just found a photo of him in an old scrapbook of mine. Probably back in Cipriani days.

RIP, Bob.  His poor mother lost her eldest son, Ed (a friend of my eldest brother's Walt while both were in the graduating class of '61 at Carlmont) in a tragic motorcycle accident in AZ about 15 years ago.  Now to have lost Bob to cancer is so sad.  It was nice catching up with Bob at the 40th reunion.

I am saddened to read that Bob passed away this month. I have so many great memories playing basketball and softball with Bob. He was a wonderful friend and he will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his mom and family.

Bob and I became friends in 6th grade probably because we were big time Dodger fans-okay, okay, we both later reformed our ways. We stayed in touch after he moved to Connecticutt around '64. When he came back from Nam he lived with me for a while in our infamous RWCity crash pad in the hills. We still kept in contact when I moved to Colorado and got together regularly both out on the coast and here on the frozen tundra. Bob was planning on visiting this August to hear the band and play some golf, but then he got sick and just like that, he was gone. Bob was a great golfer and softball player, first class real estate agent, and an even better friend. My oldest and dearest buddy from my days in Belmont, I truely miss him.
