If he had a sister called Betty, I knew the Parker family well. I lived in Fisher St for years before moving to Cranhill.

Hi Billy, Sorry to hear about Bobby, we had some great times. I was in their house in Carntyne a few times before Janet and I moved to Glenrothes in the 70s. It was a long time ago when we lived in Fisher St. Sorry I don't remember Rab, Tam my brother died 4 years ago after a lengthy illness. We were in Glasgow earlier in the year, we stayed in the Radisson Blue in Argyle St. Had a walk around Duke St, it didn't seem to have changed much there. Cheers, Billy. Say hi to Betty.
