Friendship with Bob Clemmons was back in 1947-1949 era, I was a student at TJC. We used get together with friends Doc White, Bill and Jim Mullins and others for barber shop singing attempts! Bob had the deepest voice so he sang bass. I tried several times to locate Bob when I was in Tyler, but that was before computer technology. My cousin's funeral is at Cathedral of the Pines and in searching for her obit, I happened to see my old friend Bob. My condolences to the family.
