He loved doing his daily show on WWLS, cherished talking sports with his callers, and was always championing our service men and women. Just like all of his many callers and listeners on the radio, we miss him every single day. This will be a great event and a perfect opportunity for everyone to get together, enjoy some golf, and share favorite stories and memories of Bobby."
