Now all we have are the memories. When Bob moved from N.Y. to his son's farm in Oklahoma. There were fewer post fom him. At first I thought well maybe he was busy setteling in, then I thought maybe he felt funny using his son's internet. Now we know the real reason. Hopefully his son will stop by once in awhile and share some stories about the wayback machine.
Rest in Peace Bob.

we lost a very fine friend!
I loved his postings, e.g.
https://www.plymouthowners.club/talk/index.php/topic,3202.msg16799.html#msg16799
and his legendary "Wayback Machine"
https://www.plymouthowners.club/talk/index.php/topic,2756.0.html
He and his doggy Cooper on their countryside tours will be missed a lot here!
 

RIP!
Go

With a heavy heart I am afraid that our good friend Bob Drown passed in the evening of Halloween, only 5 months after he lost his dear wife Patty, 156 day without his co-pilot was too much to bear. His son Josh drove to Neversink NY to collect Bob when he came unable to look after himself properly and took him back to his farm in Fletcher OK about 10 weeks ago and remained under Josh's roof with hospice care after cancer treatment had been withdrawn 2 weeks ago. Halloween was one time of the year he enjoyed so much, he started getting things ready for it at the beginning of September but that was Bob. We became very good friends through the love of Plymouth's both online and good old snail mail, many times we would set each other up on the FaceBook page and he would often forget which page he was on then get offended because admin would remove his post. Often told him that FB would be much quieter without his post as will these pages. This is the last photo I have of Bob 4 days before his passing sporting a tee shirt I recently sent him.

Rest easy my friend in the arms of your bride dear Patty. Miss you loads, God Bless.

My prayers go to Bob Drown. He is one of the most active members of this club. Always sharing stories and pictures about the wayback machine. I know he has numerous health issues and the death of his beloved wife Patty hit him hard. I noticed recently there have been few post from Bob. Now I know why. Please say a prayer for him as he prepared to join his wife Patty.
