What a HAM! I remember him trying to sing in a band at Katchewan Lakes. He sang "Jumping Jack Flash".
We did have a lot of good times together even if we were like salt and pepper.
He died way too young at 39.

John, this has nothing to do with high school, but perhaps you remember Robert in Sr. Thea's class, 8th grade. He sat in the back, and I sat across from him. Sister is trying to teach Geography, and Robert had a Playboy magazine stuck inside a propped-up Geography book. Yes, he got caught and his face turned crimson. I'll never forget it, and smile about it to this day. The last time I saw him was a few months before he died and we talked about the incident and laughed.

Robert, thanks for the great memory. You almost pulled it off!

Bob and I had a radio station in his basement... One of the first underground stations around here... We bought a Knight 50 watt FM transmitter and recorded all of our favortie music on tape... We would go out and cruise the town all the while listening to our music broadcast... I had an FM radio in my 55 Chevy... The tape would go on for 3 hours then back to his house and we would turn it over and start all over again...

Bob I and Ricky Schmitt drank our way through High School and spent many a nights sleeping it off in a tent... Rick had an old Army tent setup in his back yard that had a full size feather tick bed,and two army cots, TV, Telephone, Lights, Radio and a heater for the winter... Fan for the summer... If we couldn't go home we would stay there...

Bob, I and Rick were like brothers... It is sad that both are gone today, but the memories... of the three of us will always remain in in my heart and soul... So long brother someday I'll join you and we can fire up the old FM station and laugh about days gone by...
