I forgot to mention his maternal grandparents, Chris L. Fries and Emmy B Fries, . Also his Uncle Everitt Dotson, Aunt Selma Dotson Bittenbender and cousin Russell L. Dotson. All were from Eagle River and Conover, Wi. and have predeceased Bob Fett. We had many "shirt tailed" cousins in and around Eagle River but too numerous to name.
