I believe I served in Vietnam with Bob in 1969 and afterward in Baltimore until discharge. He was a great guy and I'm sorry we never reconnected since then .
I’m so sorry to hear this!!! My sincere condolences to you !!!

We are saddened...
Cathy, RIchard and I were saddened to hear of Robbie’s passing. We are so sorry for your loss. Robbie was usually the first one of our neighbors to be out after a snowstorm snowblowing your driveway, and cleaning up impeccably. We could see how much he enjoyed his home with you, and taking good care of it. From time to time, we caught a glimpse of you two headed out to do some golfing in your convertible, and we enjoyed seeing your zest for life after retirement. Our condolences to you and your family.
My condolences to the Bouchard family. I know that Robbie will be missed. Played golf with him a few times long ago. RIP
