126. STRACHER, Bob -- now deceased
Bob, and his wife of 46 years, Christine, had lived in Brick, NJ. Bob passed away in October, 2015, after a heart attack, about a month after his wife, Chistine, had passed away in late September, 2015.
(Please read Bob's Obituary, printed at bottom of this section, from the Asbury Park (NJ) Press on November 3, 2015)
After high school, Bob enlisted in the US Army and volunteered to be a paratrooper. He was assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, North Carolina -- why someone would want to jump out of a perfectly good airplane is beyond me, but Bob did it at least three times a month in order to stay in the 82nd Airborne.
Bob had been very successful over the years as a Sales Manager for a commercial glass installation company.
Bob married Christine Charlotte in 1969. Sadly, Christine passed away in September 2015; and Bob passed away in October, 2015, following a sudden heart attack.
Bob and Christine lived only 10 miles away from their close friends, Fred and Kathy Wenz. Bob had three sons and a pair of twin grandsons.
