Recollections

A member of Times Squares from 1985 to 1987, Bob died on Valentine’s Day, two weeks after his 39th birthday. Some of us remember Bob as the first caller of gay square dancing in New York. He called for Sundance from November 1983 to April 1984 and enthusiastically taught the basic steps to the varied group that would participate from time to time. It was this group that the Times Squares evolved. Many of us danced with Bob in Denver, San Francisco (where he appeared nightly as Miss Liberty), Portland and Phoenix convention. He danced – as he did everything – with high energy, spirit and flair. At the end he was at peace.[1]
