I remember Mr. Mason, he was a great teacher and he always had a smile
To Jeryl Lee, Jana, Darla, Mrs. Mason and to all the family, our condolences and deep sorrow for your loss. Jim and I will always be grateful for how Mr. Mason smoothed the way for Jim's first teaching job so many years ago. His kindness set the direction for Jim's long career in education. We were also honored by the family's attendance at our wedding in 1966!
Bob took the FTHS Ag. classes to Chicago in 1950. One of the tour stops was the Museum of Science & Industry. I never go to Chicago or pass the museum without thinking of that trip. In High School he was our class sponsor each of the 4 years. He was the one teacher closest to our ages and it was easy to relate to him. So sorry for your..(our)..loss.

Thanks for the great memorys going to the National Dairy Judging Contest in Richmond, Virginia.
To Eljean & family. I was fortunate in having Bob as a 4-H Leader, FFA Leader & Ag Teacher in the Franklin Twp. School system. I'll always be thankful for the great times on the Dairy Judging Team going to the County, State and National contest only because of Bob and his teaching lessons. He will be truly missed. Thank you Bob! David Becker
Bob and I are of the same generation of educators. I got to know him in the 60s when I was at Wayne Township and he was at Franklin Twp. I moved away, but he stayed at Franklin and built the foundation of what is one of the fine suburban school communities. As we go through life, we rub shoulders with giants, people who do their thing in their place. Bob Mason was one of those giants.
Mr. Mason was a true educator. I can remember lessons from him while I was student teaching He also taught me how to butter my ear of corn! Love and condolences to the whole family, especially to Eljean. I love you all.
To Eljean and family. Mr. Mason (Bob to most of us) was a great teacher, educator and friend. He took the time to care! Remember, grief is powerful, but so is God! Class of '52, Dotti Peek
He was a great educator and a friend to all. He will be missed! Blessings to his wife and children. Jean Miller Roehrs, Class of 1954
Jeryl Lee--Luanne and I are both thinking of your loss. Your Dad had an impressive career. I am sure he was very proud of you.

He was one of the best and one of a kind. He was always straight forward and was there to help all. God has a very special educator among his flock now. Prayers and thoughts to the family. It was a honor and priviledge to have known him. Deana (Messer) Walters, Class of 1964.
