Bob James Aebischer, age 81, of Mangum, passed away late Wednesday evening, April 14, 2010, at the home of his daughter.
Mr. Aebischer was born in Granite, Oklahoma on November 22, 1928, to Ernest James and Fern Amanda L. (Haynes) Aebischer. After graduating from Lake Creek in 1946, he moved to Chillicothe, Missouri where he attended Business College. On September 27, 1948, he was inducted into the United States Navy where he proudly served his country for the next four years during the Korean War. After his discharge, he moved to Del City, Oklahoma where he began working as a navigator for civil service.

After retiring in 1973, he moved home to Lake Creek, where he lived until his death. Hunting and gun repair were two of his hobbies, but fishing was only second to the love of his family.
