Kugler fulfills brother’s last request

November 5, 2010

“To my little brother, Bob - you have got more talent in your little finger than I have got in my whole body. You have got dreams - chase them!”

Rob, the son of Kathy Kugler, grew up in Broken Bow and graduated from Broken Bow High School, before going off to serve his country as a U.S. Marine. He followed in big brother Mike Doheny’s, footsteps. Mike, too, was a Marine.
