RIP big brother. Once Marine, always a Marine. I'm sure the Marine Corps band is ready to play Semper Fidelis just for you! (Our personal joke).

i am greatly sorry for your loss, Laurie. I can't believe Bob is gone. The times we had; and I was so proud to be his best man. I always missed him and thought about you two so many times. May he rest in peace. My prayers are with you.

Bob was my nest door neighbor growing up. He moved in up on Oak St when we were about in third or fourth grade. From than time until about a year after he got out of the Marines I played, walked to school and even worked together with Bob. Over those years I interacted with Bob more than anyone in my life. Bob, Mark Lasrich and I walked to school together for years and the two of them were the only reason I ever made it to school on time. When Bob was looking for a job after his discharge I was already working at GEMS and put in a good word for him in getting the job. We car-pooled to work for about a year.
After I got married and moved away we lost contact with each other. But with just about every thought of my childhood there was also a thought of Bob. I wish now that we had stayed in touch. He was a good friend and a good man.
