Bob died May 4, 2023, at home in Wayne, Pa.

Coming to us from Episcopal Academy in Overbrook, Pa., Bob was editor in chief of the Academy’s newspaper Scholium, active in student council, glee club, choir, soccer, squash, captain of the tennis team, and valedictorian of the senior class. At Princeton, he played soccer and squash, was vice chairman of the Chapel Deacons, and ate at Cap & Gown.

Following graduation, Bob earned a law degree from Penn in 1965 and a master’s degree in teaching from Harvard in 1972. A Penn law professor advised him to try something different for a few years, so Bob joined the Peace Corps and taught in Tanzania, where he met his wife, Sarah “Sally” Bradley Barfoot. They married in 1968 and were in the U.S. for eight months in 1969. Returning to Tanzania for two years, they both taught at the International School. In 1972, Bob began a 35-year career at Episcopal Academy in a variety of positions, ending as academic dean.

He is survived by Sally; their sons Stephen, Sean, and Benjamin ’99; and their families. The class extends its sympathy to all.
