Golden Gate RG 1 May, 2015

 
Hello ~

I'm starting this off on a vey sad note.  Diane Dupont has sent word that Bob, after celebrating his 85th birthday April 30th and putting up with may health issues for a very long time, passed yesterday morning from congestive heart failure.  Over the years, Bob had requested not to have any services for him.  Bob was a Marine through and through and a vey good V-8 friend to one and all.  Condolences can be sent to Diane and family at 600 Maple Street, San Mateo, CA 94402.
