Bob Williams died peacefully of cancer Sept. 27, 2006, at his home in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.
Born in Pittsburgh, he attended Mount Lebanon public schools and majored in electrical engineering at Princeton, where he was a member of Tower Club. After graduation, he earned an MBA in marketing at the University of Pittsburgh. He served in a wide variety of internationally focused corporate positions, including sales, product development, program direction, and site management during a career at IBM that spanned four decades.
Bob was active in the Episcopal Church in a number of vestry and stewardship roles and, as a member of the Briarcliff Manor School Board Property Committee, he successfully shepherded a plan to create a new middle school wing and new auditorium for the school.
Bob’s wife of 41 years, Barbara; his brother, Charles Williams ’55; sons Matthew, Christopher, and Rob ’89; and two grandchildren, Anneka and Theron, survive him. The class extends its sympathy to his family.
