We lived just up the road from the Brown family (old 65) at Windy City. Bob was the only one I knew at that time. The others were older. Went to school with him, he was 2 or 3 grades ahead of me. He was just always around. As adults, I would see him at the school gatherings and High School Reunions. He was a good man and friend. Will be missed.
