This guy was one of the great relievers in the history of the Angles baseball team. Three fantastic seasons in the mid 1960's.

Kay- we are so saddened to read of Bobs passing. He was a great guy.
I have very fond memories as a youngster of his pitching for the Dodgers.
He left an impression on me.
It has been a pleasure to know you and Bob these past years and we hope to be able to get together with you as soon as we are able.
Love to you, Russ and Barb Honsaker
