Our family moved from La Mirada to Garden Grove where I started 4th grade at Evans Elementry.  Bob was a neighborhood friend from then on through our Lampson & GGHS years.  After Graduation our family moved to San Diego.  Bob is one of the classmates that I lost touch with but still have memories of.  One day he came over to my house after school with new a set boxing gloves he got for his birthday.  We spent hours in my front yard punching each other between lots of snack & drink breaks. We laughed about that for years after. 

Thanks for this posting,

Clark Mitchell
