    To the Wireman Family: Dad cut Francis, Bob and Dick's hair at the Janesville Barber Shop for many years.  Marie and Betty were in my grade in school and I last saw Marie dining out some 30+ years ago and learned of her passing from Richard when he was doing some work for my parents. As so many of us left our little community of Janesville to wherever our lives took us, we have lost touch. So very sorry to hear of Bob's passing.  He was always remembered as Betty and Marie's older brother to us.  Janet Liming, Class of 1971
