I dated Robert in 1965 at Forest Park High School. We were seniors and 17 years old. He was such a kind, gentle and refined young man. He was gracious and generous and I will never forget him. I thank God for his life and service to our country.

I have never forgotten you. You were a great friend in high school and at the National Guard range. I visit the Wall everytime I go to Washington.

You are truly missed. There's no one who can take your place. To all of you who view this page, please take a moment now and then to say a prayer for his son, Robert Jr., who never knew his dad. If you served with Bob & would like to contact his son, please leave your email address and we will contact you.
