Bob and I played little league baseball on the same team in the early 50's and enjoyed a life long friendship thereafter. He was a great guy and I will miss him. My prayers are with Bob and his Family. May God be with you all.

I moved away from Clinton a year ago and I was sad to see that Boatsie had passed away. He was such a nice man may God bless you in heaven and give strength to your family in this difficult time.
