  2. Lost a very good, old friend! “Onion” and I met in 7th grade, and were instant friends. Bobby got that knickname that year, and within a year or two, everybody called him Onion. Even his mom at times! We bowled together, drank together, chased women together! We even went to the Army together. This one hurts! RIP Bobby Ray Owens.
