Bob Buquor's Daughter and Granddaughter . . . Can't Post

I went on my Meals on Wheels delivery route yesterday with a first time volunteer and we were chatting when she asked what brought me to California. I told her skydiving and she said, wow, my grandfather was killed skydiving. So thinking I might have known him I asked his name. Turns out she is Bob Buquor's granddaughter!

Her Mother was just four years old when Bob was killed and neither of them knew much, if anything at all about Bob. The Mom did attend a Starcrest event in Bob's honor but that's all.

I'm looking to put them in touch with anyone who actually knew (or jumped with) Bob. So please let me know if you can think of anyone.

That's cool! Skydiving is such a unique community, that it brings people who have never jumped together with those who have. Even though they never met before, there is an immediate connection.

I knew and jumped with Bob at Arvin. Al Paradowski is a regular on this forum and knew him even better.
Best,

Tim
