Condolence & Memory Journal

He now rests with the comrades of his youth within the halls where all soldiers lie when they pass on...Valhala...a farewell salute...

I am sorry for your loss but happy for his rejoining with Lil.

He was a carpool mate for many years as we went daily from Lake Park to P&W in the '80s and early '90s. I could count on him to be prompt, but he couldn't count on the same from me. I was always on the phone to the West Coast at days end, but he would gladly wait and hour or two for me to finish my daily calls. He would gladly drive when not his turn and keep me awake on the way home when it was my turn. He never got tired of talking, but sometimes I'd fall asleep and he'd wake me to drop me off, and never say a thing about my not listening to his stories.

After I retired in 2000 I visited him at the Bluffs a few times and once was rewarded with a potted red hibiscus tree he didn't need. I planted it in the front corner of my house, and it's now 12 ft. tall and blooms like crazy. THE BOB GEWINNER MEMORIAL TREE WILL ALWAYS REMIND ME OF WHAT A GOOD FRIEND HE WAS.
