I was looking tonight for my Oasis band mates from long ago and looked for Bobby Lau, our keyboardist, vocalist and fun guy. I am so sad to see that Bobby passed and cannot express the sorrow that I feel. Finding this tonight brought back so many, many good memories of our time enjoying music together... forming a band, practicing in Bobby's basement, the many band jobs together, late nights, traveling, 3AM at Denny's after a band job... so many good times together. I was hoping to connect with all of our band and, speaking for us all, we will not be the same with Bobby... May you enjoy all that we were together, Bobby, and maybe we can all get together someday in the future to recall that special time together... and do it again... Tom

My cousin Bobby Lau was the reason I chose a career in music. I looked up to him as a mentor and wanted so much to be like him. I miss you Bobby....

I am a graduate of Peary High the class of 1976. Elizabeth Lohr I lost my hotmail account right when I was going to e-mail Bob Lau, just to fill in what been happening from our 30 class reunion in 2006. I did not learn of Bob Lau passing until I wrestled with bad people on the internet and the lost of my connection. 2 month went by trying to get connected and when I did. I been heartbroken. I been learning all about what been going on and his life since I saw him last. I had unfinished files I been working on. I been on photo shoots. I revisited Peary High School in Aug 2014. I sent my photo's to Stu Kursner. He has the Midnight Sun up in running and my photo's made it. I first saw my friend and neighbor Pat Brian in memory. Bob Lau had a nice write up on him of the life he lived. I cried for both losses. Bob Lau is like my wing man. Like goose in Top Gun. Bob Kau was everything to us. It taken many people now just to do his work. My job is photography and getting ready for our next High School Reunion and I bring something in with me and share it with the Peary group. He will all ways be with us. Hopefully he will be looking down and seeming what is going on. Bob Lau I miss you and I will do my best not to let you down. I never left. I will do my job the best I can.

So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. Although I went to Robert E. Peary, I did not know him until we connected through the website. He kept us all glued together and I am glad for that. I loved his spirit and looking at his postings on FB, it was obvious how happy he was and you were as a family. He told me to contact him when I was in Las Vegas and I now wish I did. My sincere condolences to you on the loss of a husband, son, father and a wonderful person.

I just discovered the Midnight Sun website today. Mr. Lau did a wonderful thing by creating and maintaining that site. My mom taught at Peary, and it was so nice to see that a few students mentioned her as their most memorable teacher. It made her feel good to be remembered, and we are grateful to him for providing the forum. It must have been a tremendous undertaking, but his enthusiasm for his alma mater and classmates is obvious. He must have been a very special man.

May he rest in peace. Praying for his family.

Bob was an incredible man. He was able to keep all of us "Peary Peeps" together by his wonderful Peary website. For that I will be forever grateful. My thoughts are with Poppy and Leah.

I didn't know Bob when we were at Peary, but when I learned about the mso site and sent in my info, Bob contacted me directly. We exchanged numerous emails. He was a delightful man and so full of Peary Spirit it was infectious. I appreciated his spunk more than he could ever have known. He reached out to so many of us in so many very special ways.

Thanks to Bob's mso site, countless friends were able to reconnect and numerous couples "found" each other again and rekindled the flame. After all he did to bring so many people together, I was delighted to see that he, too, had found his soulmate, Poppy. And together they brought the beautiful Leah into the world.

To say that we will miss him is a tremendous understatement. Such a wonderful, generous man - the Ultimate Husky - he found a way to keep us together and then made it happen.

My thoughts and prayers are with Poppy and Leah.
