5 of 5 Bob Sullivan March 22, 2022

Yes I remember Bob Sullivan who lived on Orchard Ave across the street

From what was called at the time “The Dancing School.”    Bob was always

Friendly    but was much older and did not participate in our games on

Orchard Avenue…like football, softball, etc.

Don’t know much about his parents - never saw his Dad outside in the front

Of his house.   He lived near the Talento’s on Orchard.    I’ll ask around and

See what I can find out.
