He would often go on trips with his family to Wildwood, NJ, where he had been going since he was a kid.

My deepest sympathies on Bob’s passing. I know it’s been a while since Zion Lutheran closed, but I think of you when I pass your house on Hershey Ave (don’t know if you still live there)

Memories of growing up on Pine Street ( Bobby Sherr on Frederick) with my brother, ice skating and hockey at Long’s Park and Overlook and–of course–the trains.  I send condolences from my brother and me on your loss of a really nice friend and neighbor.  Blessings on you all, especially on Bobby.
