I am so sorry to hear about Bobby's passing. I had several classes with him and he was always a lot of fun. One instance stands out. During 11th grade we sat next to each other in Spanish class. Our teacher was Mrs. Turick and she had been out on medical leave. We had several substitutes, some good, some not so good and some totally naive, hapless, clueless individuals. And one woman substitue  checked all of the boxes. Putting her in a room full of 16 year old boys was not the best thing for her. On that one day she was being razzled pretty intensly and Bobby was the tormentor-in-chief. I sat next to him  and laughed with everyone else but never said a word. Suddenly, she became very angry and lambested the class. Then she turned towards the chief agitator- Bobby, and started to walk towards him. I thought that she was going to send him to Gregory's office, have his parents come in, expel and send him to an OB school. . She got right up to him and then took 2 steps to the left and planted her face in mine and proceeded to rip me a new a--hole. I looked over at Bobby and he was literally frozen, his jaw dropped. When she turned around to go back to her desk he  lost it completely and was laughing so hysterically i thought he may have a convulsion.

He was a really good guy. Thanks Bobby for this great memory and rest in peace old friend.
