The following letter was sent to the family by one of Robert’s childhood friends, John Jennings, and the family would like to share:

“Bobby and I spent the first thru the ninth grade at St. Peter’s. We spent hundreds of hours playing basketball, baseball, and football at Missouri Ave Park on Deming St. We also spent lots of time at 1209 W Deming where Bobby and his family lived.

Bobby was a great basketball shooter. Once our little troop of Catholic round ballers played Berrendo Middle School and we won. We didn’t have a coach, uniforms, just spunk!! Plus, we played b-ball everyday on the outdoor hoops on the play grounds at St. Peter’s before school, during recess, at lunch, and for a few minutes after school. Then, Bobby and I would head west on Deming until we reached S. Penn street. I would turn left and walk until I reached 1008 S Penn while Bobby walked straight to 1209 W Deming… only to repeat the same routine the very next day! We were buddies!!”
