Born May 10, 1936, in Richmond, Va., Bob prepared for college at the Loomis School. While at Princeton he found a special place with the Tigertones and the Boomerangs, a quartet spinoff from the Tigertones. He majored in sociology, was president of Tower Club his senior year, and served on the Interclub Committee. His senior year roommates were Bob Bushnell, Woolsey Conover, Bob Lewis, and Pete Schneider. As an alum, he served as class agent for three years. In 1973, by his second marriage to Sandy Scheidel, he acquired four loving children who were with him at the end.
Bob spent his entire career with Bethlehem Steel Corp., with postings in New York City; Bethlehem, Pa.; Chesterton, Ind.; and Baltimore, Md. Retiring as sales and marketing manager in 1999, he and Sandy moved to Wilmington, N.C., where golf became his passion. They had recently moved to Lancaster, Pa., to be closer to their children, Bob completing a life cycle.
Bob was predeceased by his brother, Jim. He is survived by Sandy; his sister, Julie; daughters Kathy, Liz, and Susan; son Bill; and many grandchildren. Bob lived a full, loving, and generous life and will be sorely missed by his family and friends to whom the class sends its heartfelt sympathies.
