Bob and Eulene were high school sweethearts, following each other to the University of Northern Colorado and through their 30-year teaching careers; Eulene taught elementary and Bob was a high school band director. Now enjoying retirement, they share something else, both have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). Eulene was diagnosed in 1996 and continues to work through pain and stiffness, currently using a cane to compensate for her feet which are now frozen. Bob was diagnosed in 2003 and has some paralysis on his left side. Eulene has always enjoyed swimming and was thrilled to sign up for a “try scuba” event at Denver Divers. Her husband said he would pass, but Eulene signed him up any way, and on that day Bob was the first one in the pool and the last to get out, he loved it. Now they are Dive Pirates!
Janice Strayve and Josh Temple are Bob and Eulene’s buddies, who learned to dive with John Sherman of Denver Divers of Denver, CO.
