Our long-time member, Bob Gracin, passed away a week ago. Our condolences go out to his wonderful wife Eleanor and his family and friends. Bob joined Edelweiss in 1990 and was awarded an Urkunde in 2016 for his many years of membership in the Verein. Bob and Eleanor have been loyal, active members who were always up for fun and good conversation. His friendship and humor will be missed. Bob was also a regular for decades as a drummer in many different German dance bands in the area. Arrangements for his memorial and burial are still in the works and will be shared when they become available.
