    As a former student, I was saddened to learn of his death. He made a lasting impression on my life by encouraging my curiousity and love for the peculiarities of our world. Rest in peace.

  2. Ruth Kent Says:

    Robert was a co-worker and friend through our association at the central office of the KCK Board of Education. In the last few years we would renew our friendship and reminesce about all aspects of work and life at the HyVee veterans breakfast in Mission. His dry sense of humor and wit will be missed. My deepest sympathy to family and friends.
