Other Personal Notes
Bob's Grandfather was Skip Nelson, formerly with the Chico Marx Orchestra and the Glenn Miller Band.

I get emails from around the world regarding my grandfather and have many photos of him with famous people in the 40's and 50's. I get people that do searches on him and then they call me for more info. I've been on KDKA many times in the past talking about him. He was good friends with Lucille Ball and Dezi Arnez and recorded a song with him. His best friend was Mel Torme. I actually sold his ex wife insurance who lives in Robinson Twp.
