IN MEMORIAM -- Bob Lefler

Bob Lefler
1946 – 2013

It's with sorrow we announce the passing of one of our railroad loving Docents and my next door neighbor, Bob Lefler. Costumed as a period Engine Fireman, he was well read on the period of steam trains as well as the diesel/electrics of today. He informed and educated many visitors with railroad history and lore. Bob always finished each tour with his famous disclaimer, "What I have told you may not always be true, but it makes a fine story." His sudden passing leaves an empty spot in the hearts of us who knew him, and a difficult spot to fill for the Depot.

Highball to heaven Bob..............................
