Interesting story: I had not seen Bob Shear from the end of that summer until 2003. We had just moved into a housing complex in Smithfield and were walking our dog when we bumped into a couple who had just completed signing forms to purchase a house in the complex. After chatting for about 15 minutes, we introduced ourselves. I said John Hirsch and Bob said Bob Shear, and we were both floored. A renewed friendship started. I will always remember Bob as a great guy with a hearty laugh. – John Hirsch, 1959- 1970
