  1. My condolences to the family. Bob and I grew up in Florence less than
    a block away from each other. He was such a great friend and we also played together in all sports in Florence. As Huskies we shared many victories and played for a State Baseball Championship.
    May he rest in peace. Jim Provenzano

  2. RJ, so sorry to read the passing of your father. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. Michelle Graf
