      • Hello family of “Bobby” Young.
        I just saw his obituary sent to me from our class of 1956 newsletter. I lived across the street from Bobby for probably 6-8 years. I lived at 498 Pacific Street in Plymouth, during that time when kids played outside all day. We had such adventures ! We graduated together but didn’t really have a lot in common during high school, even though when I was 8 or 9, I thought I’d end up marrying him.
        One memory I have of that time is when I was in his kitchen and curiously lifted the lid on a big pot on the stove. I was horrified to see a skinned squirrel inside.!!
        It sounds like he led an interesting and good life. My condolences.
