Born in Chicago, Bob migrated east to attend Deerfield Academy, where he played football and lacrosse and ran cross-country. He brought his lacrosse skills with him to Princeton, playing on the varsity squad in his sophomore year, during which he also chose psychology as his major and Cap and Gown as his club. He roomed with Calder, Chellis, and Plant, a foursome of friends for life.

The first stop on Bob’s post-Princeton career was two years of cruising the Caribbean aboard Navy destroyer USS Wren to fulfill his ROTC commitment. Then began a lifetime career in finance, beginning with a turn in accounting and data-processing sales with NCR, with time out to wed Lou Anne Ward in 1962. Leaving NCR in 1966, Bob moved to the audit staff of Arthur Andersen, then to various financial positions with Reece Corp., a year with Biogen as treasurer, time as VP for finance with Damon Biotech, a turn as chief financial officer with Abbott Biotech, and finally as chief executive officer of his own company, RMS Associates.

Father of three children, Bob maintained his interest in athletics, coaching his youth soccer teams to three state championships. He died Oct. 6, 2021, and is survived by his wife, Lou Anne; his three children; and several grandchildren. We have sent condolences.
