|Dedication of the|
|Bob Austermuhl Memorial Bench|
A dapper gentleman, Bob was a friend to all who knew him.
Following a mishap while pruning his trees with a chain saw, Bob passed away in March 1998, at age 94.
Following Bob's death, the residents of Pine and Spruce Roads decided to create a memorial to Bob. On June 21, 1998, with neighbors and members of Bob's family present, they unveiled a park bench, across the street from Bob's house, dedicated to his memory.
