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.
