    Bob was a classmate of mine at Bishop Hogan High School. I remember what a great trumpet player he was. He has attended many of our reunions so was shocked to hear he had been sick. I’ve contacted many classmates and Bob, his family and friends will be remembered in our prayers. Eternal rest grant unto Bob O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. He is free from suffering and with the Lord.
