Dear Virginia and Family,
I am so sorry to hear of Bob's passing.
He certainly lived a full and active life. I fondly remember visiting your home on several occassions, looking through his scrapbooks, receiving the plaques which we now have at the Swimming Hall of Fame and listening to his many stories,some of which were about his brogther Howard. I also remember your many visits here in Fort Lauderdale, going to lunch with Buck Dawson and receiveing the books which Bob donated to the library. I have slightly re-written his obituary containing most all of the informationthat you sent, but slanted a bit more to the swimming side with information that I had received some years ago from Bob. We will place this on the www.ishof.org page.
My sincere condolances to you and to your family, and I wish you good health.
Bob Duenkel, International Swimming Hall of Fame
