    I have many good memories of Bob from up at the KC Club. One lasting memory I have is Bob letting me know just what level of stupidity I had acheived after misplaying a hand of pinochle as his partner. Our opponents, Tom and Fr. Moore had a good chuckle over it, but Bobby sure was mad. We lost one of the good guys in Bob, but I’m sure he has already found a card game up in heaven.

    Our sympathies to Bob’s family.

    Mark & Janet Melby
