    In the mid 60’s, Dave Thompson, Bob Keenan and I shared a basement apartment in Everett for several years. Our apartment was a weekend gathering spot for acquaintances and friends.

    Bob was the friendliest person I’ve ever known. We spent a lot of happy hours at the tavern down on Hewitt Street with Uncle Pat and our friends, too many to name.

    Bob was especially proud of his blue Mustang convertible and loved to show it off wherever he went.

    He will be missed.
