Classmates for 1 year.

I knew Bobby when I lived in Cooperstown for 11 months, when we were in 8th grade. I remember how much fun he was. For some reason, at a party, I was helping him do a backbend. His shoulders slipped from my hands and he went down, fortunately not far and not hurt. After that, he called me Benedict Arnold, which I didn't mind. He had given me a nickname and made me feel part of the group. I have always said the worst thing my parents ever did to me was making me leave Cooperstown. Years ago, while in Washington, my family looked for Bobby's name on the wall. My son, Matthew, said we should have brought Bobby flowers. It was early spring, but Matt was able to find a little purple flower in the lawn. He was able to push the stem in the seam between the stones, right next to Bobby's name. We have done it several times since, when in DC. I told Matt, I thought he and Bobby could have been friends.

To Bobby Atwell, hometown hero

On this Memorial Day in 2024 I remember Bobby Atwell. Graduate of Cooperstown High School. His mother, Mabel Atwell, was a beloved faculty member at CHS for many years. Bobby's death left his classmates and other Cooperstonians in grief. He will be remembered today and every day. Rest in Peace, Bobby.

after all these years, I remember Bob Atwell - and smile

We went through Basic Training together at Fort Jackson, SC. 3.2 beer, sweat & laugh 'till it hurts. He was the "glue" that held our small squad together for those 8 weeks. We all graduated, then I went to Ft. Leonard Wood to be a Combat Engineer and he went for Airborne. I remember he was excited to go & so was I. We were kids.........
