Bob died April 7, 2021, of natural causes at his home.

Before college Bob moved often, living in Bronxville, Terra Haute, and Nashville, and preparing for Princeton at Mercersburg Academy. While at Old Nassau he was a busy young man, majoring in basic engineering, serving as a captain in the ROTC and vice president of Whig-Clio, twisting dials at WPRB, and outing with the Outing Club. He joined Quadrangle, and senior year shared quarters with seven other ’59ers.

After graduation Bob attended University of Virginia Law School, earning a law degree in 1962, then served a two-year stint with the Army at Fort Riley, Kan. Moving back to Nashville he joined Genesco, followed by time with Hospital Affiliates International and a successful career in health-care management,  founding two startups, American Healthcorp and Home Technology Healthcare. 

Also a world traveler — 50 countries, six continents — Bob was happiest when sharing his Millboro, Va., home, affectionately named “The Stone House,” with family and friends. Smart and motivated, he had a highly positive influence on those around him.

Bob was predeceased by his first wife, Macon; second wife, Ann; and sister Caroline Woodard. He is survived by daughter Elizabeth Lasley ’88, son Robert Jr., a stepson, three grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, and sister Martha Nolen. The class extends its deepest condolences to his family.
