I sent out 25 e-mails this morning trying to gather info about Bob so he could have a rose but he is still an enigma. It is hard to remain in peoples' memories after 49 yrs. without being animated and going to reunions, etc., reminding others about yourself. Bob was the first to die in our class in an auto accident the summer of '60, according Joe Behm. Glenn Cheetham said to the effect that it was a big shocker for his mates that someone as young as they could die. It happened on the Miracle Mile and he supposedly was driving so fast, he hit a tree and the impact was so hard, it knocked the engine 250 feet.
Diane Magliulo Vattuone says Bob went to St. Raphael's but Tom O'Doul says he thinks not so there you have it.
Everyone says he was a nice, quiet, unpretentious, studious guy. Tom says he was uninvolved in sports but his yearbook Likes was skiing. It doesn't say occasional or avid.
James Campagna: "He was a very happy, carefree guy. Reddish blond hair that we teased him about... "
Maybe someone will come along and add to this but at least Bob has his rose. Afterall, he was one of us and deserves a fond farewell.
With much help, S.H.Y.& Co.

I never really knew you, but you were a classmate and a member of the "class of '60". For that, you have a special place in the hearts of your fellow classmates. You left us too soon and you will always be remembered. Rest in peace, Bob.

So strange to hear of your death 49 years ago. I guess you'er the one classmate whose picture never changed - with maybe Dennis being a close second.
