Born Aug. 11, 1941, in Long Branch, N.J., and living in Little Silver for 66 years, he graduated from Red Bank High School as president of the senior class, playing basketball and baseball. At Princeton, he majored in psychology and was president of Cloister Inn senior year.
Rob served in the Army Reserve at Fort Devens, Mass., and Fort Hancock on Sandy Hook, N.J., then worked toward a Ph.D. in psychology at CCNY. His career involved strategic planning for Prudential Property and Casualty, with a final career in child support enforcement in New Jersey.
Two things we knew about Rob: He bled orange and black every moment once he set foot on campus, and his love of basketball led to a regular online column for roundball fans, dealing with the games — a season ticket holder — plus inside stories, anything about recruiting, and the score of games played during his career.
Rob’s wife, Diane (Vassar, Rutgers), daughter Vera ’92, and son William (Middlebury ’01), brother John, six grandchildren, a niece and a nephew, survive him.
The class sends its condolences to the family of this hard-core Tiger, who lived to see this year’s Tiger run on the court, for which we are all grateful.
