Unlike 50+ years ago, Robert Luke, formerly prisoner #1118AZ - is having a great time on ‘the Rock’! Now a trained National Park Service Volunteer, Luke spent a day recently on the island with former Correctional Officer George Devincenzi for interviews with a British film crew for an upcoming Discovery Channel production.
On another visit this month, Luke entertained a group estimated at 400+ !!! – for a full hour!
After taking questions from the curious crowd for another 20 minutes, Ranger John Cantwell stepped in and announced that Mr. Luke would take one last question – then pointed to a 5 year old girl in the front row – who asked: “Was there anything FUN about Alcatraz?
Mr. Luke thought for a moment, then responded – “Sure . . . leaving!’
‘Leave ‘em laughing’ – Bob !
And, oh yeah, Bob – unlike the first five years you spent here – there are women here now . . . from all over the World . . . but you probably noticed that!
