SHERMAN, TX -- A Grayson County veteran who was in a motorcycle accident Friday has died.
Family members say 69-year-old Bob Hillerby died around 12:15 A.M. Sunday morning. Sherman Police say around 5:30 Friday evening Hillerby hit a car that was turning into Shadow Mountain off 1417.
Hillerby was a combat photographer during the Vietnam War. Friend, Jerry Wrenn, says Hillerby made it his mission to help young veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. The two began a PTSD peer-to-peer group together. Wrenn says it will be hard to go on without Hillerby.
"It hurts and it will be tough, but we will do it. We will carry on, and for Bob, and if nothing else we will go for Bob. Bob was just a great person," Wrenn said.
Hillerby was also a board member of the Vietnam Veterans of America chapter 973.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
