Bobby Gore didn't
just gang bang as a youth. He was also a member of the Clevertones,
a Lawndale singing group that played the Savoy and other fancy
Chicago night spots. Bobby was one of those guys who could
have become anything, even Mayor of Chicago, like another
former gang leader, Richard
Despite his gang membership, Bobby was
always concerned for the people in his community, the conditions
they lived in, and how they could make a better future.
While Bobby was a scrapping gang member,
everyone recognized that he also had a big ear for people's
problems and tried to help solve them. He had a vision
for the community to become a close-knit community helping
one another. Bobby was both a member of the CVL and passionately
concerned for the welfare of his community.
In 1957 Bobby married Rose
Hunt, now deceased, and they had a son, Frederick.
