Beverly, we just heard about Obie, so sorry for your loss, remembering all the good times at the lake with you folks. Dee and I are living in NC and Florida, think of you guys often. Again the country lost a real soldier, just hard to believe. Chuck & Dee Francis
Uncle Bob, you will be missed. Todd and family.
Beverly, Bobby, Julie, Susan, and Scotty:
We were so sad to hear of OB's passing. We were part of the 4-2 family when OB served his country in the mid 60's as commander of Det 4-2 at Incirlik AFB in southern Turkey. For many of the young men, Det 4-2 was their first time away from their families and all that was familiar at home - fast food restaurants, more than one TV channel, well stocked super markets, real Christmas trees and nativity scenes, and flushing toilets. The Det 4-2 gang became our family. We spent holidays together sharing our Turkish experiences, laughing at OB's jokes, and enjoying the delicious meals prepared for us by you Beverly. We watched Bobby, Julie, Susan, and Scotty play and grow. OB's family became our family making the 2 years in Turkey and our time together in Germany some of the most enjoyable and memorable of our lives. We know that OB loved his family and his country and he cared for the men under his command. We know he will be missed.
Dear, Beverly, and family. I have been many places, currently in Afghanistan, and have had many life experiences but remember none more fondly and frequently than my time with you and Obie in Turkey and Germany 45 years ago. Our group was small, our friendship close and our mission important. This loss of a friend and fellow soldier hurts us all but none more than you and your family. I am radiating one blessing for each of the 10,000 miles that separate us. Blessings.
Beverly,Bob,Julie,Susan and Scott. My deepest sympathy to you and all your family. "Obie" was the mainstay of our close-knit family of troops, wives, and children at Incirlik Turkey in the mid 60's of our small detachment. In retrospect those three years have become a true highlight of my life. It was so great we were able to get together when we have over these recent years. I've always had great respect for Bob, and dearly appreciated his humor. I know we all will miss him. Best wishes, and prayers to you from Linda and me. Wiley Craig
