We are saddened to read about Bob's passing. He and Phil shared a room for a few days at John Heinz. There we learned that he was Myrna Schaefer's brother. Myrna was our colleague and friend. We send our condolences to the family and Dennis.

Have had the privilege of growing up with my first cousin Bob, having lived but a couple blocks away. Have known him always as a kind and gentle person, with a good sense of humor and a great outlook on life. Will miss him.
