Memories of Robert A. Kamp by Ralph J. Kamp, his younger brother.

Brotherly love…

You know how boys like to tease, well Bob was no exception. ☺

One day, I had a big cooking spoon I had picked up in Mom Kamp’s kitchen. I was with Bob on the porch outside the kitchen door, which had a big window in it. He was teasing me and I threw the spoon at Bob. Well you can guess what happened – I missed Bob but broke the window. Result: much hollering from Mom and Bob caught the brunt of it!

Another time, I was playing on the sidewalk out in front of the house and Bob convinced me to let him give me a ride on his bike. He gave me a good, fast frightening ride for sure! ☺ Boy, he really caught it from Mom for that one.

I’ll never forget the time Bob coaxed me to jump up a city curb, like you would do with a balloon tire bicycle, when I was on my 3-wheel hard rubber tire tricycle. I still have the scar to prove it!

Bob joined the Boy Scouts for a while, but was not too excited about it, although he liked the uniform. I had his old scout hatchet forever. ☺

As we got older…

Bob liked uniforms and volunteered as an air raid worker performing drills. He wore a white, WWI helmet with a safety insignia on the front. His picture was taken by the newspaper and he was an instant celebrity in our neighborhood. Very proud of him!

Bob delivered Western Union telegrams. It was a big deal back then because they were known for the speed of the communication. He used his old bike for a while, then saved up enough and bought a brand new Blue bike with sports styling from Western Auto on Cherokee Street. He gave the bike to me when he went into the service and I rode it for years. Thank you!

Bob planned to join the Coast Guard, but ended up in the Marine Corp for 4 years (1946-50). He was deployed to China as part of the occupational troops. It seemed to me that he liked this. When he came home from there, I could tell he was looking at me with more “mature” eyes.

He got out of the Marines in 1950 and then served in the reserves – part of the rules back then. He wasn’t much for going to the monthly meetings. But guess what, he was called up and served in Korea for about a year as a Tank Commander.

Just weeks after he came home from Korea, he married Jean Bozdeck in 1952. She had planned the whole wedding – and I was an usher. ☺

Bob & Jean bought a train for me for Christmas. The fun I had! Thank you! ☺ ☺ That train is still in the family and being used by the children of our youngest daughter Amanda. Bob also gave me a watch for my high school graduation.

For a period of time, Bob & Jean lived in the same house with the rest of the family. We lived upstairs and they lived downstairs. Even then, we had moments of “brotherly love” like when we were kids. I vividly remember Bob chasing me up the stairs trying to “kick me in my smart mouth behind”. He never caught me though! ☺

Bob & Jean did very nice things for Nancy and I. When we were very young and had moved to a house that needed more electric to run an electric stove. Bob installed a circuit for us – something we had no idea how to do. Later on, he would always stop by and give our children Easter goodies and toys. He was the godfather of our Dan.

Though the Kamp family didn’t spend every Sunday together, we had many good times on holidays and have many more happy moments and memories. Thank you Bob, we will always remember you.

See you later in the big print shop.

Love, your brother Ralphie.
