I worked with Bob as my first engineering position out of college last year. I considered myself so fortunate, even then, to work and begin my career with him. He took very seriously his role of being a mentor to us young engineers, not only with his wealth of technical knowledge, but how he lead his life with respect, integrity and compassion. Lessons learned and memories of Bob I am sure we will all carry with us through our careers and lives. I know I certainly will. Stromberg family, I am heartbroken for your loss, he is missed by many.

Stromberg family, I am a young engineer in the Edison program at GEA. Bob was my assignment leader for the past year. All the folks who have ever worked for or with Bob have only had great things to say about him. He is stoic, kind, thoughtful, firm, honest, and intelligent: a paragon of humanity and role model for all. When I first met him, I was struck by his selflessness. He was unconcerned with what I could do for his team or the business. Instead he wanted to know how he could help me grow and develop as an engineer and as a person--something I've never felt or seen so clearly from another leader. I am so glad I was able to get to know him and learn from him this past year. Please know his memory and influence lives on in each of us--a light and a force of good that we pass on to one another. He is sorely missed.

One time we were looking through my dad's wedding album and he told me, "I thought that day was the happiest day of my life, but every day after it made me even happier." He truly loved his life and his family and it showed in everything he did. I'll miss you, dad.

I worked with Bob multiple times over the years in Bloomington, IN and at Appliance Park. Wanda and I are praying that your family has peace of mind. I always loved going to a meeting where Bob was and had his computer desktop open. There was always a picture of your beautiful family. He is missed greatly.

I knew Bob as a co-worker for the last couple of years here in Mexico.

Incredible teacher for all of us but specially an amazing human being.

We all be missing you and remembering you any step we move forward. You will always be part of us.

I knew Bob as a coworker and had the pleasure of sharing a few meals together.

Once when he was down in Celaya, Mexico, I was able to drive him sightseeing to the main Catholic churches downtown.

Aside from an accomplished professional, and a very valuable member to our team, he was a warm and caring human being. He will be missed.

I never worked directly with Bob but was his desk neighbor. I could always tell that Bob had passion for his family, faith, and job. I always admired his kindness he showed at work and the tenacity he brought to his job. He was always a good person to talk to, to gain some positive energy and learn something new. He was a really smart engineer. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Stromberg family.

I just received this sad notice today.
I worked with Bob in several projects when he traveled to Mexico.
So we were friends I had the opportunity to know the kind person he was. We just talked few months ago. He will be remembered as great person same as great engineer, that always look for the good in all senses.
My deepest condolences to Bob's family.
