    I just saw this.

    I went to high school in Summit with Bob, and the comment about his comedic ability was dead-on! Someone would say something – and out of nowhere – Bob would say something and lay everyone out. The pic is from the class yearbook. That part about the black socks? Damn! That was TRUE! He did wear black socks at gym class!!!!

    So sad he has passed. I would have loved to have seen him again.

    Love You Bobby! Rest in Peace.

    Love Doris
