And a little info about Bob:
Bob was a Marine City boy. He graduated from Marine High in 1959 and after getting both his BS and MS from the University of Michigan, he attended the University of Cincinnati College of Law, clerked in the Oregon State Court of Appeals in Salem, Oregon, and then returned home to Marine City to practice law. Bob enjoyed many past times, but his two major loves were reading and Marine City Football. He was a dedicated library user and a member of the task force when the Louis R. Miller Memorial Library building, which houses the Marine City Public Library, was built in 1983. We could always count on Bob and Lynn, his wife, to support the library’s programs whenever we asked.
How the Robert M. Foster Memorial pavilion came about –
The Foster family named the Marine City Library as one of the recipients of memorials when Bob passed away. When I asked Lynn if I could use the memorial money to help build a pavilion or purchase a bench she said she wanted to pay for the entire pavilion because “that is what Bob would want”.
