I am saddened to hear of the passing of a wonderful man. The Burba and the Back families go way back and I am remembering many weekends spent together at the Roseville Auction. It sure wasn't the auction without Joe and Pearl and the whole Burba family at their table with the Back family set up somewhere close. Our families made many friendships amongst each other over the years and I have many fond memories of good times with Bobby, Billy, and Anna...I also remember my first Corvette ride with Joey and my brother Billy! Carl and I would like to extend to all of the Burba family..Bob, Bill, Anna, Joe and their families our most heartfelt condolences for the loss of their father are all in our prayers~Diana and Carl Grosser
