Born four score and one year ago, Robert B. White, 2949 44th St., Rock Island, is celebrating a birthday!
Bob is a Sherrard High School graduate and a veteran of the Korean War. While at Sherrard High School he met his life-long love and verbal sparring partner, Joanne, which through their union produced two sons.
Over the years, Bob's interests have included sports, horses, music, sports, dancing, cards, Iowa Hawkeye sports, traveling and sports. He is a very loving grandfather and was particularly supportive during the grandkids' involvement in spo ... uh, school activities. His participation during the golden years of men's softball (when men were men and women sat on bleachers) created many life-long friendships, which he enjoys to this day.
Bob had a successful career as a sales representative for a pharmaceutical wholesaler, but after retirement found a creative outlet as the stunt double for Ernest Borgnine.
Happy birthday Dad, may you have many more!
