I was Bobs roommate from late 1969 to May of 1970 when he was going to The Collage of Arts and Crafts a.k.a. Farts and Laughs in Oakland,Calif.I was a candle maker at the time and he used one of my candles in the first film that he made, I believe with a friend of his named Fritz Groskuger he was a long time friend of Bobs.Bob and I shared a great distain of Richard Nixon at the time.He then moved to Portland,Ore.and I moved to Monterey,Ca.and lost touch with him until I moved to Portland in 1977.I ran into him just before he moved to So.Cal.I only found out that he passed away in 2009 when I by chance searched his name on the internet,I was deeply saddened.I would really like to talk with anyone who knew him and would really like to know how to get ahold of Fritz.

I met you just a few times. You came to our house for the Grattan-Gardiner cousins reunion and I remember your quiet creative energy, standing on the porch. When I look at your photo I am so struck. I see my grandma Katy (your aunt) and so much of a certain kind of spirit. I'm afraid it's going away, but am fiercely glad I saw it. I now live in Portland, and it is nice to think you lived here for years.

I recently was using the internet to locate old friends and found Bob had passed away, so young.

I knew Bob when he lived at the Lawn Apartments back when he won the Oscar in 1975 and kept it on top of his refrigerator.

I have an old photo of Bob holding up his Oscar.

My apartment was right above his on the third floor.

It was a magical place full of artists, writers, poets. I guess the archetecture attracted them all to the Lawn Apartments in NW Portland.

Love to hear from old friends who may have known me back then.

Does anyone know what happened to Terry Davis who was the manager and left for LA to become an actor.

Or Marty Owen, the Irish Poet.

Hey Bobby,
I knew you in the 70's in Portland and still think of you in 2007 in England. You always did make a lasting impression. I mention your name to anyone I ever meet who is interested in clay or animation here in Manchester. Bless your cotton socks Bob.
