A SPECIAL MOMENT WHEN BILL INDUCTED BOBBY INTO THE HORN LAKE HIGH SCHOOL HALL OF FAME IN 2014...
WITH GREAT SADNESS, WE SHARE THE NEWS OF THE PASSING OF OUR SCHOOL-MATE, AND FRIEND    ROBERT H. 'BOBBY' RASCO  OF THE CLASS OF 1962, WHOSE DEATH OCCURED ON SEPT. 8th AT BAPTIST DESOTO HOSPITAL.

SURVIVING BOBBY ARE HIS DAUGHTER, PATTY RASCO AND SON, ROBBY. HE ALSO LEAVES HIS BROTHER, BILL and HIS WIFE, PAM AND TWO NEICES, KIMBERLY DAWN GRESHAM AND LINDY MICHELLE BUSBY. BOBBY WAS PRECEDED IN DEATH BY HIS WIFE OF 39 YEARS, JOYCE LANKFORD RASCO....AND PARENTS, HARRY AND JEAN RASCO.
BOBBY WAS ONE OF THE MOST BELOVED SCHOOLMATES WHO EVER GRADUATED FROM HORN LAKE HIGH....GREATLY RESPECTED BY FACULTY AS WELL AS CLASSMATES. HE MAY HAVE BEEN SLIGHT OF BUILD, BUT HE WAS A 'GIANT' OF A GENTLEMAN AND FRIEND TO ALL! AFTER HIGH SCHOOL HE HAD A LONG AND SUCCESSFUL CAREER AS A CONDUCTOR WITH THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL RAILROAD. MANY WAYS TO DESCRIBE OUR FRIEND, BUT CHIEF AMONG THOSE DESCRIPTIONS WOULD BE: HE WAS AN AVID FAN OF THE 'MAROON AND WHITE'...THE MSU BULLDOGS, AND COULD BE FOUND ON THE CAMPUS FOR MOST OF THEIR GAMES.
VISITATION WILL BE AT 10 AM, SEPTEMBER 11th, WITH A CELEBRATION OF LIFE SERVICE TO FOLLOW AT NOON. BOTH WILL BE AT BRANTLEY-PHILLIPS FUNERAL HOME, 2470 HIGHWAY 51 SOUTH IN HERNANDO. INTERMENT WILL FOLLOW AT NEW BETHLEHEM CEMETARY AT THE CORNER OF CHURCH AND HORN LAKE ROADS.

I HAD A RECENT VISIT WITH THE HLHS PRINCIPAL, ANDY ORR. DURING OUR TIME TOGETHER HE VIEWED OUR HORN LAKE EAGLE NEWS WEBSITE AND ASKED IF HE COULD LINK IT TO THE SCHOOL'S WEBSITE, WHICH HE CAN, AND WILL DO, SHORTLY. HE LOVES HIS ROLE AND RESPONSIBILITIES THERE...HAS A REAL PASSION FOR THE SCHOOL....
HE THEN TOLD ME ABOUT  HORN LAKE TV  WHICH IS BASICALLY A TV STATION WITHIN THE SCHOOL,  RUN BY STUDENTS,  AND, OF COURSE,  MONITORED BY THE ADMINISTRATION (FOR THOSE OF US IN THE CLASS OF '58, CAN YOU IMAGINE A VIDEO CAMERA IN THE HANDS OF....SAY....BOBBY GILBERT WHERE HE COULD HAVE CHANNELED ALL OF HIS CREATIVITY?)....ANYWAY, THEY 'BROADCAST' THEIR PROGRAMS THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL.....YOU WILL JUST HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT (AND NOT TAKE MY WORD FOR IT) THAT IT REVEALS THE HIGH QUALITY OF STUDENTS WHICH STILL WALK THE HALLS OF OUR GREAT SCHOOL!......('CLICK' ON THE LINK BELOW AND 'CLICK' THE 'RETURN ARROW' IN THE UPPER LEFT CORNER TO GET BACK TO THIS WEBSITE.)
