Loss of Another GPKer

Hi Marty,

I noticed in the Gazette today that a long-time ex-Parker has passed away out west. He is Robert (Dinty) Williamson of Isabel Ave. His family lived across from me in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. His mother ran a dance school in Greenfield Park from around 1930. Photos of her dance students and groups have appeared on the blog. If anyone sent in photos of these groups, Beverly, his younger sister, would love to see them, so if you are one of those who posted them, maybe you can send them again to Marty for posting unless you remember the month and date they appeared.

Bob and his brother George rode motorcycles with Johnny Treboutat and Paul? Castleman and others in the 1960s. Bob was married to Carol Flesch (divorced) possibly the sister of Donald and John Flesch who were at the reunion in Greenfield Park in September. Perhaps they know how to locate Bob's two children to let them know of their father's passing. I'm sure everyone who knew him would like to express his/her condolences to the Williamson family.

Thanks John
