Hi! Just couldn't figure out who my Granpa Bob looked like. I finally figured it out. Just for fun, who else can see who he resembles? :)

I wanted to share this family photo of Bob Awbrey with the community. Location: unknown. Date: unknown.

Thank you! He was quite a "player" from what I know though. My brother takes after him there too. :)
Please check out the comparison photo of Keanu that I have added to Bob's profile to see the resemblance.
*if that photo is not allowed, please delete. It is only there for comparison.

Looks so outta place in that little chair, or maybe he is extra tall?
answered by Marion Poole G2G6 Pilot (227k points)
From what I know, he was rather tall and lanky but then again the furniture was probably "antique"or "vintage" (or my well have been what the photographer had in the studio which is pretty obvious, in general, that is where it was taken) for that time when people were a bit smaller, maybe?
He was an evolutionary marvel if that is not the case.
My brother is 6'2 or 6'3 and takes after him but he isn't lanky.
The lankiness may have come from poor nutrition. It was Oklahoma in around the start of the Depression and he was probably in his mid to late teens.

He looks like Keanu Reeves!

Rikki- your grandfather is a very handsome man and this is a very good picture - marvelous!  but I do not see the resemblance or a look-a-like to Keanu Reeves.

Also, this looks more like a studio picture; the background looks like a painted back drop, so the chair would not have necessarily been of his choosing or a fixture in his home.

Thank you so much for sharing your photo.

I beg to differ. Please look at Bob Awbrey's profile as I have added a photo that shows a distinct resemblance between Bob and Keanu Reeves.
There are several photos, if one Googles them, that are just as similar.
(if the photo of Keanu is not allowed, please delete. It is only there to compare likeness.)
From another of my replies:
"or may well have been what the photographer had in the studio which is pretty obvious, in general, that is where it was taken."
* edited after above answer was selected as the photo was obviously taken in a studio. At least to the OP it was, when the photo was posted.
