  • Some Gave All

    Posted on 1/31/18 - by Jasmine Allison Allison.JasmineL@gmail.com
    On 1/27/2018, I had the honor of placing a half-dozen yellow roses at my great-uncle Bob’s panel out of immense gratitude for his service and on behalf of my grandmother, Lynda Cook Jarvis “Midge”, his older sister. Yellow roses symbolize appreciation.

    Robert Cook “Bob” gave his life while attempting to save the life of a fellow soldier in Vietnam at the age of 19. I was born 20 years later so I never got to meet him, but I recall my grandmother, great-aunt Pat, and uncle Jim speaking of him with adoration.

    Thank you uncle Bob

  • Remembering Bob

    Posted on 5/17/15 - by Tim Sullivan tpjgsully@yahoo.com
    Bob went to Arroyo high I went to Rosemead we met when we both worked at Food Giant on Lower Azusa in El Monte. We became pretty good friends . I remember several times going to the drive- in in his brothers Austin Healy or his dads VW bus. That Austin could burn some oil, a quart to and from Hollywood to do some cruising.I remember when he and Linda got married. I was also in Vietnam when i got a letter from someone, don't remember who, and heard about Bobs death. I immediately felt bad for his mom, she was a nice lady.
