Bob, known to friends as, "Mortley", or "Mort" lived in Hawaii for a few years surfing. Came back to the states and joined a biker club where I really got to know him. Steve Blaine, my husband at the time ~ now dead, and the group of us would ride, and ride. The best time I rememeber was on Thanksgiving, along time ago, we all sat around the fire in someones backyard talking and swapping stories and laughing our asses off. Few months later we received the call he was dead. There were over 200 club members and friends who attended his funeral. The cemetery where he was buried was at the end of a very quiet street and the people came out of their homes to watch the parade of Harleys and people in leather drive down their street. Most of San Rafael Police department was there to watch us!!! To this day when I'm in San Rafael I stop and say hello to a guy that could make me laugh no matter how bummed I was. We will meet again. Rest in Peace my friend.

Bob was part of our Lucas Valley group that all attended 4th grade together (Diane Deen, Nip Glover, Mary Ann Alves, Bev Jacobs, Chris Doll, Karen Shei, John Hamron, Gary Roberts and others). I always remember going to Cotillion classes with Bob and several boys in the neighborhood and how their moms always told them they had to dance with me. Dutifully they did ....much to their dismay I am sure.

It is so good to know that he had fun later in life, Louise, and like Pam, my memories go all the way back to the 4th grade and how funny and fun Bobby was. We all had such a charmed childhood where we were safe and mischievous and we would slide down the hillside behind Caryn Shehi's house across the street from Bobby's and form a train with numerous cardboard boxes and hit rocks and wipe out and climb the hill and do it again. We hardly ever watched TV or were glued to the computers because there was no such thing. Those of us who have the privilege of growing old certainly have lots of fun memories to sustain us.

I lived a few houses away from Bobby (never heard him called Mortley) during high school. He got me involved with the YMCA ( a great organization), surfing, and led trips to the Avalon Ballroom to see the Dead, Big Brother (and some girl named Janis), Quicksilver and other SF sound bands. Bob was a key member of the lucas valley Hi-Y guys like Nipper, Mike Skeen, Bob Martin, Scott Broome etc.... . Bob was a 'groovy' laid back guy that was friends with everybody, so I have trouble with the vision of him as a Hells Angel. I pray he has found peace.
