Sorry to hear of Bob's passing. We did a lot of things together in high school, including playing on the baseball team and intramural basketball. We also played on a flag football team after graduation and he was really a good player. I think he was on the high school team and I wondered why he didn't play more. He was always the life of the party and had that great infectious laugh we all remember. The last time I saw Bob was 20 years ago or more, when we accidentally bumped into each other at HyVee and had a short conversation. Bob's loss is a good reminder to enjoy every day!

There was only one "Flatty."  He was a beauty.........always seemed happy, cheerful and full of fun, with maybe a little "mischief." I only knew him for the 2 years I attended Mankato High, but he was always smiling and very cheerful. I would run into him over the following years as we both "mingled" throughout the greater Mankato area in search of fun.  A truly fun, fun guy. He will be missed.
