Sad News

It is with with great sadness that we must announce the passing of Robert “Bobbi” Sekerak. Bobbi was a pioneer in the bottle cleaning. He and Paul Mendik were nationally known for the quality of their cleaning. All their machines were self made and a visit to Bobbi bottle cleaning shop was nothing short of amazing. Bobbi and I were frequent dealers at the Shupp’s Grove Bottle Show. We slept on grounds either in a tent or under the stars. What an adventure. Read Bobbi’s obituary.
