(Bob is second to the left)

You will remember that Bob has been an avid supporter of the ORWFD 5K Run/Walk Benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project in Memory of Pfc. Wesley R. Riggs.

Bob collapsed after running a track meet on Saturday.  His daughter reports that he went 50 minutes without a heart beat and the doctors put him in a medically induced coma and a body temperature of 75 degrees to lessen possible brain damage.

LATEST UPDATE:  Quoted from his daughter, “They should be starting the process to bring him back to normal body temperature but will be doing it half a degree at a time. Once he is at normal temperature they will wake him up and check his status. At this point it should be around Monday morning/Monday noontime. Thank you all for your continued thoughts and prayers. I know there are networks of people praying right now for him.”

Please be in prayer for the really good and decent man that has been an inspiration and role model to all that meet him.
