  1. Bobby was a very close friend. We met in 2nd grade and were in YMCA Indian Guides, cub scouts, Boy Scouts and even started an Explorer Post while in high school at Affton. We lost touch with each other when I moved to New Orleans after college at FSU. He is such a great guy, I am glad I could share many great memories with him in my life. His Father and Mother became very close with my parents as well, during those tender years we were growing up. RIP Bobby

  2. I thought we left a message but I must have done it wrong. So I will try again. Paul knew Bob and Mary most of his life through Affton and I met them through him.Bob was the nicest and most patient man, he & Mary raised 3 wonderful daughters and 2 sons.
    God bless the Vanecek
    Family, we love you ❤️
