Bob was one of the most active members of the Class of 1949. He served as class treasurer in 1989 (and again in 2014), class vice president in 1994, and class president in 1999; all for five-year terms. In addition, he was the Reunions chairman for at least three Reunions  (plus serving on the Reunion committee for many years). And he also spent many years working on special gifts programs like the Maclean Society.

Bob came to Princeton from Culver Military Academy, majored in economics, joined Tower Club, ROTC, and the Flying Club, and won the intramural heavyweight boxing championship in 1947. He was married that same year and eventually had five surviving children, three girls and two boys, from two marriages.

Bob worked for many years in a variety of businesses, ending up counseling executives who had been displaced or reassigned. Unfortunately, his health failed and he spent his remaining years in institutional care with Sandra, his former wife, as his caregiver.

Bob’s enthusiastic embrace of everything in life never failed him. After retirement he and Sandra took Rollerblade lessons!

Bob died Dec. 19, 2021. Our condolences and sympathy go to his extended family.
