RICHARD ROWDEN Dear Bev, Kim, and Robbie ; I am very sorry for your loss. Your dad was one of the best. I had an oppertunity to hearing your dad, Don Collin's and my dad making plans of attack the walleye poachers on the lower Clyde River. Your dad and Don rode in the back of my dads Station Wagon, faces blacked out were dropped off in the dark on the back side of the river and left to crawl down next to the river. My dad left and listened on his cruiser radio. Residents came out of their homes and headed for the river and started grappeling the fish. Story was that Bob and Don ran out into the river and your dad grabbed one of the poachers and picked him up out of the water apprehending him. They were so proud of themselves. It goes to show how much effort they put into their work. I also was a Navy reservist and served with him for a while. Thinking of you.

I remember him as a dedicated and very funny fellow game warden. We worked together on the warden association newsletter.

Dear Bev, Kim and Bobbie, Sending prayers to you and your families for the loss of your husband and father. My dad always respected and had a good word for Bob when he spoke of him. I noticed that they were the exact same age and were veterans too! May your memories of him keep you filled with gratitude and hopeful of someday reuniting together! With love, Deb and Mike Lewis
