I came to know Bobby through my husband Raymond Rieger and the many stories he has told through the years of all their adventures growing up in Del Rosa. The bond of two young boys living a life in a rural area surrounded by open spaces and exciting adventures reminded me of the story right out of the film, Stand By Me! Their right of passage was taking chances by learning to drive in up and down an old dirt driveway with out anyone knowing, at least that's what they thought! Many times they would ride their bicycles out to Green Spot which was miles from home and spend their money on an ice cold soda which was kept in a ice filled chest. The boys would often go to Perris Hill Plunge and loved to get frozen Three Musketeers Bars or Big Hunks. I think the boys also like to see the girls which would be an added bonus, after all they were boys! What a life they must have had with few rules except to be home for dinner. As they grew up and changed schools and activities they grew apart but always kept a bond of friendship. Marriage and career propelled them in other directions but never out of thought. Last winter at just about this time we got together with Barbara and Bobby. The minute the two grown men saw each other they became little boys again. The shared memories flooded back as they looked at photos from old school annuals etc. It was as all those years apart were gone. Ray never had a brother but Bobby was like a brother to him!
To the family who must now face such a devastating loss know that you will always miss him but he's not far from you and will hold you up when you need him most.

I was shocked when I saw this posted on Facebook! Bobby Jeannotte and I grew up in Del Rosa together. We went to school throughout grade school and junior high. For a number of years we spent almost every day together. The stories I could tell would never stop. Barbara and the family will be in our thoughts. Going to the service at Mt. View Cemetery will be a difficult time to see many old friends. Our birthdays are one day apart, his middle name is Raymond - how close can two people be and we weren't related! Words can't express my feelings.
