  1. My condolences to the whole Shedlock family. Everyone was so kind to me. I had met Carl at St. Ben's and we dated. I remember watching a video Bobby took that showed an island erupting in the ocean and met Gemma, too.
    I know Carl was very fond of him as I am sure all of you were. My heartfelt sympathy and love to all.

  2. Bobby, as we called him, was the oldest of 5 siblings, and therefore had command over all of us. As a younger brother, I marveled at some of his high school years antics. He had one of the best looking DA haircuts in the school and added to it by dipping it in peroxide – thus being a blond for a short time! Later on, as I made my way to high school, I paid for some of Bobby's antics as Sister Mary Bernaline, who was about 85 at the time, thought I was Bobby all the time. I was glad I soon moved on to another class.

    After high school, Bobby joined the Air Force and was soon given some choice assignments – Duluth Minnesota and Keflavik, Iceland. Keflavik turned out to be a good assignment as he took R&R to Scotland, and he came back after having met Gemma Tedesco. (They married, and they spent over 53 happy years together.) The Air Force was nice enough to make Bob and Gemma's last assignment Eglin AFB on the beautiful Gulf coast of Florida.

    Bob and Gemma were so happy when Maria and Michael were born and they raised two wonderful, successful children.

    Bobby, you left a mark on everyone you met and you will be truly missed by everyone! My only regret is that we lived so far apart and weren't able to share in all the good times with you and your family. Gemma, Maria, Michael, Heather, Zachary and Lucas, Marilyn and I are so sorry that you've lost such an important part of your family. You all will be in our prayers in the days ahead.


  3. All the family has our deepest sympathy. Bobby was my cousin and he was 9 years older then me. I can remember when he graduated I had a crush on him, I thought he looked like Elvis Presley. So handsome !! Love, Janice (Eschbaugh) & Jerald Denius

I also remember my first visit to Uncle Bob & Aunt Gemma that was in the 1979 Maria was in high school and Michael was young maybe 10 or 11 and Uncle Bob took me everywhere went to Sea world Canada loads of other places also watching Michael playing sport, also that was the first time I had seen the film from Monty Python The Life Of Bryan it was so funny I remember we were all watching and laughing an crying it was so funny, then 2 years ago I went back with Fernand we had a great time but sadly Uncle Bob was ill but he still managed to take us on a cruise around Ohio and also to Canada we had a great time he loved to entertain and make you so welcome I will our little chats on Skype thank you for all the lovely memories you will always be in my heart Rest IN Peace you deserve it love Georgine & Fernand xx

  6. I will never forget when I was 17 years old and he and Mom bought me my first car. We took the Red Trans Am for a test drive in the parkway in Middleburg Hts that day.
