Friend, Neighbor, School Mate

I lived across the street from Robby in Norman. We started school together at McKinley. Most days walked or rode our bikes to school together. Hours spend playing over the summers when we lived at Lions Park until well after dark. Then to West Junior High and Norman High. Played sports together. In late 68, I was in my senior year at OU headed for the USAF and pilot training after graduation when I learned of his death. A dark day. Frequently think of the good times we had growing up...miss you brother...

Remembering Robbie

I went to grade school and high school with Robbie, and lived in the neighborhood of his family's grocery store. My sisters and I were allowed to walk to the store on our own for popsicles when we were still pretty young, but my stronger memory is of what a sweet fellow Robbie was and how moving and heart-catching it was to find his name on the wall out of all the thousands on a Washington DC afternoon more than 20 years after he left us.

A classmate

Robbie and I were in the same class at Norman High School. Everyone knew him, but, I can't say that we were really friends. However, he was so friendly, he probably made everyone feel like a friend. My most gripping memory of Robbie came years after his death. I was at the 100F cemetery in Norman. I was looking for my grandparents grave site when I turned a corner around a large cedar bush. Near my feet was a military plaque. It was Robbie's. Now, I'm sure that I was near 40 years old when that happened. I read his plaque and will ever remember that he lost his life on Christmas Day, 1968. Robbie made an early entry in my memory when I heard his name announced over the radio in late December, 1968, or early January, 1969. Robbie, Bill Blair and Charley Mount had all lost their lives in Vietnam. It was a typical announcement of he time; however, as I recall, it was the first lives of Norman men lost since Richard McWilliams, in 1964. In my mind, Robbie will always have perfectly groomed hair, a madress shirt and a very warm smile for anyone he met. God Bless Robbie and his family.
