Bobby and I worked together at Channel 3.....We had just finished up at a remote at the State Theater in downtown Cleveland....we were so tired, so we crawled up in the back of the truck to take a break....unbeknownst to us a photographer took a picture of the State Theater and we were in it...the picture ended up in a large calendar for Cleveland....Bobby was a great guy to work with.....I will miss him.....my condolences to Joan and his family.
