Bobby, as he was called, was the beloved son of Charles Cosover and Harriet Shoudt Cosover of Milford, Hunterdon Co. He had two sisters, and a third was born after he died.

He was named by his older sisters after the character of the youngest boy on 'The Brady Bunch.' His middle name was for his maternal grandfather, Harry K. Shoudt.

He loved his Matchbox cars, playing hide and seek, and playing football with his eldest sister's green plastic embroidery basket on his head for a helmet.

Bobby woke up one morning not feeling well. By nightfall, he had passed away from an illness similar to encephalitis. Despite an autopsy and further investigation by the Centers for Disease Control, medical authorities couldn't be sure of the cause.

Bobby was taken far too early. He is always missed.

Heartfelt thanks to Barbara Hammons Davis, who so kindly sponsored Bobby's memorial.
