Bob Plant
Bob P., or Bob Plant, was a good friend of Jim Parks. Bob was very interested in Sis up until the night Sis introduced him to Ginny. Bob and Ginny began going steady, later got engaged, and eventually married.

Sis recalls:

“Bob Plant was one of Jim's friends and we kidded him around because he worked on the garbage trucks and told us stories about his job. They chalked-up the rats they killed on the side of the truck, just like the pilots marked up the planes they downed on the sides of their aircraft.

Bob was one of the neatest guys we knew though, and sort of quiet. Dot never had a ‘thing’ for him, but I went out with Bob for awhile.”

Bob would go on to work for Chicago's Streets & Sanitations Dept. for the remainder of his life.
