Published in Sept. 14, 2005, issue

Bob died Feb. 26, 2005, in Stockton, Calif., his home for nearly 50 years.

At Princeton he majored in history and graduated with honors. During World War II he served four years with the Merchant Marine.

Postwar, he earned a law degree from the University of Pennsylvania and passed the California bar in 1947. He practiced criminal research law in Stockton and at one point was research attorney for seven judges of the San Joaquin Superior Court.

Bob married Barbara Howell in 1945 and Evangeline Case, an Air Force widow with four children, in the 1960s.

His favored pastime was sailing. He was commodore of the Stockton Yacht Club, and in 1971 he and Vangie sailed a 44-foot ketch from New Zealand to San Francisco.

Bob is survived by five children, Robert A. Jr., William and Robert Case, Nancy Neitzel, and Jeannie Quintoa; and a brother, Peter Haughwout. His extended family includes 14 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, and 27 nieces and nephews. The class sends them all sincere condolences.
