In Memory of Bicycle Bob
Born ? – September 2000
He was the most well-known stranger in Tucson. Most of us knew him only as Bob. No last name, no other information. In fact, I'm sure you all knew him well. He was the tan, physically fit, bald man who rode his old bike in a Speedo all over town.
His death saddened me so much that I felt a need to write this little something for him. My way of saying goodbye to Bob. Acknowledging his life and his death and letting him known we'll miss him.
