|I just learned from his brother Jimmy that Bobby died. Bobby was my first friend as little boys in the first grade in Southie. After my family moved away, he and I continued to stay in touch. While in the Navy with my ship in Charlestown, I often visited him and his family on G Street. The last time I saw him was when Bobby and Jimmy came down to the Cape for a visit. To this day, I always remember the tune we used to sing together while riding our bikes to Castle Island or playing ball on the field between Carson Beach and their home on 1514 Columbia Road - "Hock and Lock, two trouble makers." Eternal peace, my friend.
