As Bob's brother, I am so grateful that June and I had the opportunity to take Bob out for a wonderful dinner just 3 days before he died of a heart attack. (We were returning from Chicago to Minneapolis and stayed overnight in Madison). Our hearts were warmed by the love and happy memories shared by the residents and staff of Elderhouse, where Bob lived the last 7 years of his life and where we held a memorial service. We've also been touched by expressions of sympathy from our extended family, as well as former friends, neighbors and co-workers. Rest in peace, Bob. Welcome to your eternal home.
I lived on Talmadge St. during our young years. We had some great times with all of our street friends. I have a picture in my room of many of our friends. His Grandpa took many pictures of us in our early years. I have many fond memories of our youth. The McCormick Family sends our condolences.
