I was thinking about Bob today, as I have on many many days thru-out my life and I ran across this page, I met Him thru my X-Husband, and Tho I didn’t know Bob well, he made a lasting impression on me. Like I said, I have thought about him often through the years and Infact most of my friends know the story of this young man. The guy that would swing by anytime He was on the The Eastern Shore and fill our house with Excitement for Life and intriguing, almost unbelievable stories. Like Yelling at Kenny Rogers to move his yacht while in Alaska, that is the one I remember most, lol. He truly was the most memorable person I have ever met. And Thank you for the pictures, pic 4 is exactly how I remember him.
I met Bob shortly after his training. Super guy! I saw him just about every weekend in Iloilo City. We visited each other’s sites. I was getting ready to go home, after my 2-years. He was just getting started. He struggled a little bit in the beginning. We all did. He was very committed. He was a good friend. Soon after I got back to the states, I found out the news. I was crushed. I will always remember him. I wrote his parents a letter.
Bob was in my Peace Corps training group and was a big influence on all of us. He was always thoughtful, caring and at the same time ready to get involved, play, have fun and joke around. After I lost my father, Bob was the single person most able to help me get through it. I still miss him dearly.
