So sorry to hear about Bob's passing.  We were "pole vault" partners and co-wrote and edited the "Daily Track News" at HHS.  Great guy, great friend.  I'm glad Teresa and I got to meet up and visit with Bob and Janet when they were in town a few years back.  He'll be greatly missed.  Janet wrote a perfect tribute to him.  We wish her and the family all the best.

Oh, Dear Bob! Gosh we miss ya. And especially all those 'dry-wit' bad jokes. You were so, so smart! Full Scholarship to IU Bloomington! And just after we'd kinda reconnected during 2017's Hurricane Harvey and we found out we'd been working in Houston, Texas only a few miles apart. And then,my office moved to the far west side of Houston and it was closer to your new home. We traded emails during the byoux flooding near Baker/Cypress Landing. Yet, we were not to see each other again in person. But what absolute great memories of you from Hazelwood High, and on.

The Hazelwood High and college years - - -and tying get Kroger to sell us beer- - -while underage. Yep, you, Mellies, Cooper, Garrett,  the Niehaus brothers etc,etc., every summer we'd reconnect especaily around the Indy 500. You, of course, actually rode in the 'Little 500' bowl at IU Bloomington (a 500 lap bicycle race)- its a parking lot  today. But you and I got to talk about IU Bloomington as one of my sons attended- - -and actually gradulater there, too. And Oh Those INDY 500 trips every May while we were in college. Four straight years of midnight drives to get to the 'Coke Lot' to race into the infield when the gates opened at 6am eastern time. And yes, we once got into the infamous 'Turn One' at the track- - -the turn ABC sports had to 'censor' due to the dress/undress of the participants in the 'Snake-Pit'! WoW, too much for us clean cut boys from HHS. And what memories of the 1973 race, delayed both Sunay and Monday due to rain. BUT WE DROVE TO AND FROM INDY EACH DAY!!! We actually saw a race on Tueaday, sitting in the best, high-dollar seats- - for general admission price. And our great cars??? We had to stop multiple times along creeks on I-70 to get water for the radiator cause they leadked too much- - -but the cars got us there! And then, we graduated and got 'real-jobs' and off we went in our separate ways.

God Bless Ya Bob and God Bless Janet and the boys!/t
