My friend Robert (Bob) Sommars was born on a farm 12 miles from Wadena in 1925. His parents were Amos and Mary and he had two sisters. Amos was a farmer. Bob graduated from high school in Verndale. For spending money young Bob did odd jobs for neighbors, as in driving bundle wagons at threshing time. Mostly, his father had enough work to keep him busy at home.
