Remembrances

From the 'Wall of Faces" website


Bobby was a great guy - truly unique.  I remenber the all nighters we (Bob, Jack Crowley and I) pulled cramming for tests at his Brookine apartment.
I recall he had a much younger brother for whom he had good deal of affection.

Bob was originally listed as MIA on 05 Sept 70, but in reality he was KIA that day - a little over two years after graduation. Bob was piloting a forward observer aircraft when he was shot down and his plane was seen plummeting into triple canopy jungle, no parchute observed or beeper detected. Rich (Cheech) DiPietro  -  a veteran pilot himself  - is 100% correct  -  Bobby was a great guy and we had a lot of enjoyable days at BC talking about our futures after military service.  I still miss him and was very proud that he chose to become a flyer for his country.
