It&singleqoutess always sad to hear about friends of many years ago, leaving this earth, but we all know our final destination and that&singleqoutess with Christ in Heaven. I know Bobby is there today.

I’m hoping this message can be forwarded to Bobby’s family.Myself and Bobby served together and were good friend in the army.We went to school with the navy in Mare Island California and then deployed to Vietnam together.We were in Saigon and Cat Li together most of the time unfortunately we lost contact.I have so many great stories about Bobby if anyone would like to know.He was a great guy and always had my back.I feel so badly that we never had the opportunity to further our relationship in the world.I moved to Fort Lauderdale in 1982 and did try to look him up in Panama City or as Bobby would say Southern Alabama.If anyone would like to reach out to me I have a lot to say about my friend.Also he received I believe a bronze star for rescuing a pregnant Vietnamese lady from drowning.My name is Tom Douglas I’m the handsome one in his pictures.954-326-1850
