    What a shock to read of Bob’s passing in the Sun! We worked together at N. E. Tel. Co. Renewed our friendship when his Father-in-Law, Bob M., became our best friend in 2001! Later on at Vic’s and Spinner’s games.

    We will always cherish the memories of those fantastic pool party cook outs and meals at #43!! I’ll bet all the angels are enjoying his heavenly cooking now!

    God bless and keep you Carolyn, Jennifer and all the Loucraft family.
