Bob will be missed by many, we grew up together, was in the Bearcat band he was on the drume line, and we did the highlighters band for the band follies Bob will always be remembered for his sense of humor! We used to walk to school together unless we could catch a ride with Dr Knox if we were lucky, it was  a long walk from rittenhouse to BC Central, but it ways gave us time to share stories along the way. Rest in Peace Bob, it's been a journey for sure!!  Your Friend forever, I'll see ya on the other side!!!!
