mitz was enthused about every thing he did, i remember riding bikes to knowland park to oakland zoo to explore, i remember catching him on varsity, he had grit on the mound, wouldnt give in to hitter,  he was the fullback on football team along side those two tiny halfbacks we had back them, john esparza and hirosi kishi both who might have weighed in at 125 to 135 lbs.  he was always looking to help, i can remember junior prom cheryl stewart had broken up with her boyfriend at time and he encouraged me to ask her to go.  we were in the same platoon in boot camp, a long story is when we went in they wanted 20 volunteers to go into the marines which meant 4yrs in and if they didnt get them they would select them.  at end of day they called out 20 names and told to stand in the back, both bob and me and louie christopher were in the back.  someone asked why they were in back and they said those 20 were going to fort ord and the rest about 420 guys were going to ft. polk la.   we had a good laugh.   thanks bob for being a friend to  my younger years .  i remember going to your wedding at horns of the hunter , i will miss you

So sorry to hear this news. You were a great golfing buddy. You could hit a golf ball a hundred yards further than me. You painted our whole house for hardly anything, before we moved to North Carolina. I always wonder if you ever moved to Florida.  One great funny memory I had of the two of us. We played in a golf tournament in Monterrey and shared a motel room. I never warned him that I snored "occasionally".  He asked my wife, Barbara, how she could stand sleeping with me.  He thought a train was coming through the room all night.  I told him I didn't snore, RIGHT.  He played great anyway, but we always laughed about that time. He was a great friend.  Miss you, Mitsu!  Rich Allen
