Bobby was such a great kid. He was on the boys gymnastics team at NB and then 10th grade at WJ -- it was truly inspiring to watch him compete despite the physical challenges he faced. It was very sad to see him pass away even before finishing high school.

Bob was a friend of mine. We often would talk about our competitions, and not once did I ever hear him complain about his problems. He was dedicated, a true warrior, and an inspiration. He was soft spoken and kind. I remember one time he got 3rd place in the back stroke, and we were talking; he was happy, but not satisfied, and thought he could do better. He always wanted to do better. He never quit, but pushed himself. He was a hero to me.

I miss him.
