PDG Robert Hichborn passes on

Lion Robert Hichborn, Past District Governor (1985-1986)
San Jose West-Campbell Lions


I have learned, today, from a very reliable source that PDG Bob Hichborn died this weekend after a long illness. He has been cremated and will have a private, family funeral.

Your prayers for his journey to Heaven be included in your talks with God.

It is Bob’s hopes that you will remember the happy times along the Lions trail and the many gifts of sight that he was able to give through the InSight Program. He was very proud of that program.

Yours in Lionism,
Chuck Hart, PCC
Bob was District Governor
