I worked with Bob, and benefitted from his professional experience in the chemistry department at IU for many years. Bob was a key to our successful projects, and was a joy to talk with about any subject, including his tremenordous dedication to both Boy Scouts and to his family. We are all poorer for losing him.

Carol and Hans,
Bob was an inspiration to us all at Chemistry - through his work, expertise and dedication over many years. His work with the Boy Scouts was admired and appreciated as an inspirational model of a dedicated citizen of the larger community. He will both be missed and remembered with fondness. We pray for the well-being of you both in the days to come.

Dearest Carole and family, please accept my thoughts of love and prayers as you all go though this sad time. My darling husband David, I and three boys lived in Woodview Hills for many years, on the "back" road. My husband and I built two homes back there, loved the neighborhood and the pot lucks we had. Love to you and your family, Susie Hamilton
