To the Editor,
I just wanted to commend Andrew (Branca) and the Daily Light on the excellent article about Bob Sokoll’s death. He was indeed a fine man and great leader for our city for many years.
Actually, Gene O’Donnell and I were on the city council that hired him in the early ‘80s. He and his family came here from Paris, Texas.
But he was even more than a city manager. He and his family became good friends of ours almost immediately and have remained so.
We were fortunate enough to have a visit with Bob and his family the end of last week. I will miss him greatly.
Edwin (Ed) Farrar,
