Bob and I go back to Blountville High School. His sister Joyce was a dear friend of mine. Joyce and I were cheerleaders & I also was cheerleader with their brother Bill. I spent a lot of time at their home and at the newspaper office. Bob was handsome, smart, funny and a great person to be around. I also was friends with his wife Peggy. Talked with her shortly before her death. Great people, I miss all of them. Joan Greene Younce Charleston, SC
