Like Bobby I was born in Chardon in 1938. We went to grammar school together. We played sports together, pony league, high school and in the summer for Farinacci Buick & Olds fastpitch softball team. We graduated together from Chardon High in the class of 1956. We both went to Ohio State. Bobby came home after we graduated and made a life here. I went off to California. In those next 60 years I would return to Chardon to visit my mother, my brother Dick and Bobby. We usually spent an entire day together and it wasn't a special day, it was just a typical day for him, and he took me along. Often it was a garage sale, so I remember we had to get there early. We went to a village fair of some sort in Orwell on Mayfield Road. I had lived in East Claridon while in high school and I had never been to Orwell! We drove up to Fairport, I believe it was, just to shake hands with our boyhood local sports hero Tommy MacDonald. I remember just having breakfast over in Mentor and the waitress, an obvious West Geauga grad, was so delighted to be waiting on her “Mr. Ishee.” In later years, we both were slowing down, and we began to reflect on what our lives had meant. Neither one of us felt much regret. And I wanted Karen to know how much joy and comfort she brought to Bobby. He was a shy man, and he couldn’t get over that she actually seemed to care for him. I loved the guy. I will miss him terribly. - Tom Adams

So sorry to hear of Mr. Ishee's passing. John and I had him as a teacher in the 8th grade at Montville elementary. He was the best! I remember at our 8th grade dance all the boys were lined up to dance with Marilyn. What a loss for all. God bless his family members and know that his memory has always evoked smiles and always will.
