Bob was born Aug. 11, 1939, in Chandler, to Clint and Glendola Hall Sullaway. He attended Duncan High School and graduated from Oklahoma University with a bachelor of science degree in petroleum engineering.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
