I am sorry to come across this. I was looking for Bobby Barkley. We grew up and went to high school together. My family rented the first floor of the 2 flat Paul and Lottie owned at 209 N. Lockwood. Bobby and I were good friends, playing checkers in the basement or riding the El Downtown. I married Robert Gipson, a friend from down the block. He passed away in 2009 of cancer. My sister, Judy, and I loved Bobby. Great sense of humor and contagious laugh. RIP, Claude, Bobby and Wally. For the good times. Joyce
