Hi Carol,

Former Daily Press sports writer Bob Moskowitz passed away Saturday, Nov 28. Over many years he covered many events which included the TYPHOON. I am sure a lot of your readers will remember him. Although not a NNHS alum, I think it would be interesting for others to include him in a future newsletter.

Thank you Carol....and as always Thank You for all that You do for all of us......Bobby

I read Bob's columns growing up, then got to work with him for four years (1983-87) at the Daily Press. Even had the privilege of covering the Peninsula Pilots (his main summer beat) when he was on vacation one year. He was a unique and talented individual with passion and wit. My condolences to his family and friends.
