In Memory of Robert C. "Bob" Jeckering

This past Wednesday, my 1st Cousin, 2x Removed passed away- 

Robert Cletus "Bob" Jeckering (1934-2015)

I first discovered Robert when I was researching my dad and grandfather's high school- Chaminade Catholic High School in Dayton, Ohio. On the school's website, you can browse through the past yearbooks so I looked up all the names in my family that I could find and Robert was one of them. I blogged about it back in August 2014: 
you can read that blog post Here.

Bob graduated from Chaminade in 1952 at the age of 18. He married and they had 6 children. 

Bobs funeral was held this last Saturday, September 26 with a burial at Calvary Cemetery- among many other family members of mine.
