Enjoyed Bobby's humor and antics, most deservedly getting "class clown".

I didn't really meet bob until high school was almost over.i thought he was not only very nice but also very funny.i enjoyed that brief friendship.i was sad to hear he died at such a young age.i think he died in his early 20's.the last time we spoke I think he was already having health issues.

Bobby was my next door neighbor on Phillips Avenue and probably my best friend during our first several years at Coles.  As I recall, Bobby was about 6 months older than I was.  For some reason (lost in a distant memory), Bobby was held back for a semester.  I remember when I first heard about his father's death - a heart related ailment.  (His father, I believe, was a physician).  We must have been only about 6 or 7.  I recall that I had difficulty processing this event and promptly moved on to playing baseball or marbles with Bobby.  It's really unfortunate that all the males in his family carried that hereditary gene.  His brothers Charlie and Phil also died at a young age from the same or related condition.  Some of you might remember Bobby's nephews Mark and Todd  Drollinger.  All of these families lived in the same building on Phillips where Bobby lived with his widowed mother in the basement unit.
