Robert Edward Greenlaw ’66

Published in June 9, 2004, issue

Bob Greenlaw died Mar. 3, 2004, at his home in Houston after a courageous battle with cancer.

Bob came to Princeton from Houston's Spring Branch HS, where he served on the student council and football team and as senior class president. At Princeton Bob majored in civil engineering and was a member of Dial Lodge. His activities included the Jamesburg Visitation Program and, as he proudly noted in our Nassau Herald, service as a volunteer Volkswagen carrier in the Spring Riot of 1963.

After graduation Bob married Martha McClintock and moved to St. Louis, where he worked for McDonnell Aircraft. In 1970 he returned to Houston and entered the field of general contracting, serving as vice president of Spaw Glass Construction. He was an inventor and held numerous patents.

Bob's greatest passion was ministry. He worked in a number of Bible churches and eight years ago began an outreach to China. Bob also loved helping churches, missions, and friends build homes and churches.

To Bob's mother, wife Martha, children Todd, Greg, Robert and Rebekah, and seven grandchildren, the class extends its heartfelt sympathy.
