Bobby Dower was best known as the managing editor of the American Press, but those of us who knew him knew the real Bobby and he was a joy to know.

I first met bobby about 10 years ago when I was appearing in 'Gridiron' and Bobby was also involved in the show. We grew to be friends during that production and I have to tell you, the man was a class act all the time. I've never met a person that would disagree with that statement.

Bobby passed away Wednesday night and from everyone at Townsquare Media, our deepest sympathy to his family and his co-workers at the American Press. Bobby Dower will be missed by everyone who ever met the man.

Funeral arrangements will be announced by Johnson Funeral Home.
