November 21 – Happy Birthday Bob Morin

Bob Morin was born in Tupper Lake, NY on November 21, 1933. His Mom and Dad moved their family of seven children south to Amsterdam and Bob attended Amsterdam public schools and graduated from Wilbur Lynch High School in 1951. He served in the US Army from 1951-53 and saw action during the Korean Conflict. He married his wife, Amsterdam native Janet Kline in 1957 and their marriage lasted for 54 years, producing four beloved children.
