Sonora Pays Tribute To Bobby Rapp

Sonora, Ca — Mother Lode residents lined the streets of downtown Sonora Friday morning to pay tribute to fallen Army Sgt. Bobby Rapp.

Since the announcement that Rapp was fatally injured by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan back on March 3rd, the community has rallied its support around the Sonora High graduate and his family.

The procession was led by the Vietnam Veterans of America Post 391 Motorcycle Group. The Celebration of life service will begin at 10am from the Sierra Bible Church.

The service will also be audio streamed live on MyMotherLode.com. Just go to the home page and click on Bobby´s picture directly to the right of the Local News headlines.
