I was saddened to learn of the recent death of Bob Nery of Apex, NC. Bob was a fine clarinet and soprano saxophone player. I played with him in the Capital City Jazz Band in the Raleigh area in the mid-1970s. He also played with Tom Shea's Okeh Jazz Band and the Raleigh version of the Salty Dogs. Bob was a very gentle and kind man, and I always enjoyed his playing. He was recently retired from the Spring Hill School at the Dorothea Dix Hospital in Raleigh. It seems unfair that he didn't enjoy a long and musical retirement, but sometimes that's the way it is.
