Bob was an icon of the LAFD. My Dad Stan was his friend from way back and I met Bob as a young boy. His cartoons in the many years of Firemen’s Grapevines are legendary. We have some of his original artwork in both the Hollywood and Harbor Fire Museums for all to enjoy. We also have all those old Grapevines in our archives. He made many people happy and served our country and our city with honor.

I was an Autofireman at FS 17A and Bob was our Truck Capt. Bob was instrumental in the making of the film “Our Obligation” and was the most famous Fire Dept cartoonist ever. Most of Bob’s cartoons were the result of real happenings! Bob understood the character of Firemen which resulted in him being a great leader.
