Jolene & family, so sorry for your loss. Mr. Hinrichs brought youth and vigor to Prescott School. His music left a lasting legacy for his students.

Dearest Jolene, Kris, Martin, and families, I am so sorry for your loss.. Bob was a wonderful man as you know. One fond memory I will always remember about Bob when he was the principle at SHS. Brooke was a senior and wrestling cheerleader. The wrestlers went to state that year. I had rented a hotel room and most of the senior class stayed there. Needless to say we partied!!! Well that got reported to the principle. Monday morning I found myself facing Mr. Hinrichs, the principle for this situation. Bless Bob's heart, he said, " I believe if you break the rules, you pay the punishment. That is how it is." He showed no favoritism. He was a just man. Brooke took the punishment.. Later on Jo and I became friends. Every time I was around Bob I felt like I was back to the day I was standing in the principle's office, in front of Bob while he was sitting at his desk. I was embarrassed but, Bob never held it against me. I will never forget that day. He was a good principle. Jolene I will not be able to make his services. I will come and visit you at a later date. I think that will be better to spend some time 1:1. Jolene, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I love you my misfit buddy! Jerlyn
