Bob Magruder, USMA1964 Be Thou at Peace PDF Print E-mail
Past WP-ORG Chairman, Bob Magruder '64 passed away September 17, 2018. His family wrote the following memorial message:
"The quintessential soldier's soldier, West-Point class of 1964, career soldier, artillery, and three time All-American swimmer, passed away on Monday, September 17, 2018. Robert was the son of the late Peyton Magruder and Julia Motley-Magruder. Loving husband to Angie for 50 years; father to Cynthia Magruder, and Scott Magruder (Venus); Brother of Marshall Magruder (Lucy) and the late Douglas Magruder, KIA Vietnam. A kinder man there never was."

Bob was a All-America Swimmer at USMA. Part of his legacy, are his contributions and work for the team throughout the years. He always wished to ensure that the swimming program needs, unfulfilled by the Army budget, were met. He was a career artillery officer, retired as a Colonel, and subsequently worked on Enterprise Transformation and Business Process Re-engineering with the Logistics Management Institute for five years. He served on the AOG's Board of Trustees for four years in the Communications Committee and supported the Alumni Support Committee, when needed. Bob was the first Chairman of WP-ORG Inc.  Later, he took a less active role in WP-ORG  to go back to full time work at the Institute for Defense Analyses where he was an Adjunct Staff Member in the Strategy, Forces & Resources Division. He worked on special projects in support of DoD and loved his work. He actively pursued and supported the quick development of a high energy laser and relay mirror system for warfighters.
 
WP-ORG is indebted to Bob for his steadfast work for this organization, and for the greater West Point community.  WP-ORG is better for having had Bob serve as our first Chairman.  We are saddened by his death, and will always miss his winning smile and endless exuberance.

In lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Wounded Warrior project, or to the B-26 Marauder Historical Association  for that was so dear to Bob's heart- since his Dad designed and built the B-26 bomber.
