Greg, sorry to hear about your Dad. He and Dado are probably already recruiting Jesus to pitch in Heaven. Prayers for you and your family.

I'm so sorry to hear of Bobby's passing. He was a good friend and bought me my first ankle cowboy boots! I loved them so much and he felt they were the most comfortable himself. I enjoyed the games! My brother in law worked for Higgins Delta in Elkhart. Bob pulled up in his limo and kidnapped us I will never forget that! I'm still an Alabama fan! South Fork was famous on the Baugo. Freida was so beautiful inside and out. Good memories in Elkhart, Indiana. Much love to you all.

Greg, so sorry for the loss of your dad. I'll always remember our days of fast pitch softball and traveling to the many tournaments and the many years of league play around Indiana and Michigan. Bob was a competitor and I'll never forget the tourney in Terre Haute when he hit a double, they had me pinch run, which honked him off. Then I get picked off 2nd by the catcher. Don't think he ever forgave me for that one. Blessings to all of you guys.

Very sorry to hear of Mr. Higgins passing. He & Freida were close friends to my parents. Myself & my 2-siblings were fortunate to spend many good times with the Higgins family when we were very young. He will always be one of the original pioneers of the RV industry. He started a business building his first RV himself. Very few if any, have the knowledge & hard work ethic to do that these days. He & Frieda will be remembered by me the rest of my life. Rest in Peace Mr. Higgins you will always be in my heart.

I have so many happy memories and good laughs when I think of Bob. He was my favorite boss and it was my favorite job because I learned so much working with him and he trusted me to do the job he asked me to do. He holds a very special place in my heart and will always be remembered fondly. My deepest condolences to Greg, Chan, and all your family on this sad loss.
