He was a dedicated NOAA civil servant working as a Geodesist where he was responsible for modeling the orbital characteristics of GPS satellites to centimeter-level accuracies. Throughout his life, Bobby was an avid chess player and global traveler as well as a talented Irish dancer performing in St. Patrick’s Day parades and a one-time opportunity at the Kennedy Center. Bobby was a beloved son and brother, leaving his devoted brother Wayne and seven dear first cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert L. Dulaney, Jr. and Elaine Rauth Dulaney.
