Bob was first and foremost a teacher. He taught and administered in universities for over fifty years, where his tireless work ethic and unfailing belief in equality and fairness earned him trust and respect from students and colleagues alike, enriching thousands of lives. He was a wonderful father and mentor to his children and grandchildren, sharing his humble wisdom and his love of nature, literature and social justice with them continually. His story-telling abilities were enthralling. May he find his rest in the afterlife, and a peaceful meadow there to fly kites in.
