I wanted to place of photo of him here from a Facebook page, but I cant figure out. how. I could only copy this :
My Uncle, Bob Lechner, passed away peacefully early this morning. My mother and his wife were with him, and all of his children were nearby. He was a wonderful, sweet, kind man, and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Including me.
We went to visit our New England family last fall, when River was about 15 months old. She had only met him a few times, very briefly, but as soon as we got there, she ran right up to him, grabbed a book from the shelf, and climbed up onto his lap, like they were old friends. That's just the kind of person he was. I'm so glad she got to meet him.
I hate this club.
