Hi Sally,

It saddens me to hear the news about Uncle Robbie. I admired and respected Uncle Robbie and the life that he lived. I'm sorry for your loss. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help and please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,

Sally my mom and I are so devastated and saddened to hear that Bob has left us. I am out of town in Woodstock NY for a recording session this weekend. I will keep tuned to my e-mails for any news. My prayers are with you. Love George.

Sally. Marshall shared the news with me. Helen and I are so saddened by the many difficult health issues Bob has had to endure. But to his credit and yours, we also appreciate your thoughts on what a great life you have had together, and that you have lived it to the fullest. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Our sincerest sympathy.
Thursday, March 06, 2014
Dear Sally: I heard the news from Joan. In case we don't connect by phone, I want you to know how deeply saddened I am at your loss.

Bob was such a sweet, loving, decent man. We all appreciated him so much, for his integrity and his humor. His smile lit up the room.

I am just so very sad, and wish you great strength and mindfulness in the coming days. There are few things so difficult.

I love you so much. More than you perhaps know.

I am praying for you.

Most sincerely,
Thursday, March 06, 2014
Oh, Sally, I was so surprised to see the message from Dave. My deepest sympathies.
The world is indeed a better place for having been graced with such good people as our husbands. Treasure each wonderful memory. I wish you peace; the love goes on.
Love, hugs, and prayers. Mariette

Dear Sally,

It was a shock to both of us to read Jay's forwarded message from you about Bob's passing.

Our heart goes out to you and Bob's family. We know that it will be a difficult time for you. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Jay will continue to keep us posted.

Dear Sally,

Both Mike and I are broken hearted for you Sally. We wish there was something we could do to help you through these tough times but unfortunately we cannot fix what has broken. We just want you to know that we are right around the corner and will drop anything to help you.

Your letter to everyone was so touching and heart breaking. Did you by any chance send that letter to the neighborhood? If you did not, would you like me to send it out? We did take the liberty to telephone a select few yesterday to pass the news on. Devaux, Hess, Dorsey, Shaw and Martha Henderson. Each has said if there is ever anything they can do, please do not hesitate to ask. They are equally heart broken for you.

Our prayers are with you. Take care and we will see you soon.

Love Mike & Lil

Gillian and I were deeply saddened to hear about Bob; a cruelly premature and unexpected loss, the World will be a much poorer place for his passing.

Mere words of mine can never hope to compensate for your tragic loss, but I hope that the knowledge that you rest in our thoughts and prayers is of some consolation at this difficult time.

Dear Sally
My heartfelt condolences on the loss of Bob. I always knew him as a very energetic and dynamic person. I wish you comfort, peace, and that the memories that you have made together over the years bring you comfort. I have learned in the years since Jerry's death to take time for me and adjust to each new adventure without him. Life is and adjustment and it continues daily…
Again Take care and make “new memories” and be good to yourself. Thought of you often over the last year and wish you comfort and prayers.
Take care,

Colonel Sally Uebelacker, USAF (ret)

Dear Sally,

It has been some time now since we first learned of your dear husband Bob's passing and the well-attended services that followed with friends and family. We had a short conversation on email at the time, thinking of you and what we could do to help out, as we coordinated updates with Dave Coulie and the Albuquerque Chapter of AFSFA. These efforts seemed hardly enough considering your loss. It was wonderful to know and hear of the magnificent support from our AFSFA folks in your area, and the inspirational services held for Bob at Kirtland. I only wished it had been possible for me to attend.

Sally, Bob was a low key, highly professional, and very humorous guy. I enjoyed his letters at Christmas time. In all his experiences in the Air Force, his U-2 assignment caught my eye. Being the humble guy that he was, he did not gloat about this high-flight assignment. When he passed, I called one of my friends who had been a U-2 pilot, but he had served at an earlier time and was not acquainted with Bob. I wanted to be sure the flying outfits where he may have served would be notified of Bob's passing. Presumably, my friend passed the word to the U-2 associations holding annual meetings and reunions, so that proper notices could be made of his passing. Additionally, he will be remembered at our annual meeting/reunion in Tampa in September.

There is not much to say at this late juncture, Sally, except to remember how Bob and you have served the Air Force and the Nation in such a remarkable and honorable way. We will not forget his service and how he was reverently remembered at his passing by so many of his and your friends.

Sally, we hope to see you soon so we may think back about our own stories and services to the Security Police and the Air Force over the years. You were certainly a trend setter among outstanding women serving in the Air Force, an example that many who knew you followed in their own careers.

During this Holy Week of Easter, we will continue to remember Bob with great admiration and pride, with the good fortune to have shared part of his life with him. On behalf of all of your friends and long-time associates in the Security Forces Association, we continue to express our feelings of sympathy and condolences to you and the families. May God continue to bless Bob's soul with peace and loving kindness.

With warm regards and special memories,

Dear Sally,

I've been in the UNM Alumni Board quarterly meeting all day today and just received this note.

I'm deeply sorry for your loss.

I have always enjoyed keeping up with you and Bob--if by no other way than your holiday updates.

You and yours will be in our thoughts and prayers. We will make a heartfelt gift in Bob's memory and honor.

Please let me know if there is anything else we can do to be supportive and/or helpful.

Sincerely,

Sally, I just learned the news of Bob's passing. You have our deepest condolences for your loss. I recall, among other things, having dinner with you and Bob at your home while we served together on the Air Staff. Bob was a fine officer and a real American hero! David

Space Raiders,

Today we suffered a terrible loss in the Space Development & Test Directorate family. Mr Bob Uebelacker passed away after major surgery in Boston.

Bob was a great American whose life was spent in the service of our unit and of our nation. Everyone knows well Bob's fantastic job in the Test &Operations Division these last four years, but Lt Col (ret.) Uebelacker first served his nation with distinction as a B-52 pilot and then as an U-2 pilot before continuing to serve as a civil servant.

Please keep Bob's wife Sally and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

We'll share more information as we receive it to ensure we fully support Bob's family.



With deep sadness,

mjm

Sally,

I was so sad to hear about Bob losing his battle with cancer and I have thought about the love you two must have shared during these tough times. I can't begin to imagine what you're feeling or thinking but please know that you are in my family's daily prayers. May we all be as lucky as you & Bob to have had that special love in our lives. May the wonderful memories of your amazing vacations and quiet moments get you through this.

If you need anything, feel free to call on me.

Sally I am so, so sorry to hear about Bob. I am here for anything you need and you and your families are in my prayers. I will see you when you return to Albuquerque. You are both very special friends and I want to help in any way I can.

Take Care of yourself

Sally,

Just wanted to thank you again for giving us all the opportunity to say goodbye to Bob in different ways yesterday. The Requiem Mass was moving, gave comfort and fostered acceptance by us all of Bob's passing. Your eulogy was a brave and loving tribute to Bob's gentle, unassuming nature and dedicated service to his country. We all enjoyed last evening's fellowship, and the telling of favorite memories of Bob's life so well lived. I know we all are now so much more at peace with Bob being taken from us so suddenly.

We have very fond memories of our time together. Bob had a great sense of humour. The warmth of his personality will always remain with us.
Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Sally,
I was surprised and saddened to learn of Bob's passing in your recent letter. It was such a privilege to work closely with Bob on the FOTRS test planning project at AFOTEC. Due to his hard work and professionalism, there was never a doubt that his part of the project was being well managed.
Since mine will be one of the last entries in Bob's memory book, I have taken the opportunity to scan the numerous notes left by others in Bob's honor. It will be no surprise to anyone that the entries are filled with comments of how much Bob was loved and respected. His zest for living, sense of humor, humility, and patriotism have surely endeared him to all that have known him.

Sally,

When God made Bob, he threw the mould away. In my eyes, he was the opposite to the brash American; his silence hid a wicked sense of humour of a caring, thoughtful guy.

Sally,
You will recall that, as a British officer in the Royal Air Force working with you at the Molesworth cruise missile base, I first met Bob in the mid 80s; he was flying TR1s out of nearby Alconbury.
He struck me as an incredibly relaxed, unassuming and humorous guy whom I immediately took to. Subsequently, upon a visit to your home in Albuquerque, he was a terrific host who seemed to take genuine pleasure in showing off the nearby sights - a holiday that I will never forget.
I still find it difficult to believe that he is no longer with you. Bob, to me, was one of the nicest guys I have ever met and will always be remembered as "the quiet American".

Sally,
Even though we knew Bob fairly well, we learned so much more about him after visiting your house last week. I had always thought of Bob as an extremely good-humored, intelligent guy. He was so much fun to have around, and he had such a variety of interests. The most special thing about him, to me, was the way you two were as a couple. You were best friends, and treated each other with respect, always. He was unfailingly sweet to you, as you were to him. Other couples could only wish that their relationships were as good as yours was.

After visiting you last week, we realized what a truly Renaissance man Bob was. His mind was thirsty for learning. He had interests in everything from ham radio, to model airplanes, to computers of all sorts, to jet propulsion, to tools, to photography, to any system that was technical, to computer gaming, to nature, exercise, travel and diving. It seems he wanted to learn about everything - life was a continual adventure to him. How sad that Bob, the intellectual adventurer, is no longer with us in body.

But Bob will always be with us in spirit, and in the memories we all carry of a wonderful man. We were lucky to have known him, and we are lucky to have you as a friend.

My husband, David Turner, and I enjoyed the many hiking outings we had with Bob in the mountains surrounding the Albuquerque area. He was alway ready with his dry, witty comments or observations. We enjoyed the many weekend breakfasts we had together and a chance to catch up on daily activities, funny stories about the animals, or about our vacations. I also remember fondly our many moves in the late '90's. From my office to your small apartment, to my apartment in Grants, NM to your house on the West side that you were preparing to sell. A true friend, you will be sorely missed. We will try to make sure that Sally continues some of these traditions, but it will NOT be the same without you!!!
Wednesday, March 27, 2013
Sally,
I still can't believe that Bob is no longer here with us but he will always be with us in spirit. We was a wonderful, warm person who made everybody feel they were important to him. I loved calling your home and having Bob answer and having a long conversation with him about what was going on in both of our lives before he called to you to speak to me. I will always recall his soft and kind voice and his loving demeanor. Please remain my cherished friend throughout the coming difficult times so we can share many more old memories and create many new ones. My sincerest sympathy in your loss.
Monday, March 25, 2013
Sally,
Both Fran and I are deeply saddened by your tragic loss. While we didn't know Bob as well as we would have liked, it was obvious after reading many of the entries in your guest book that he was a much loved and respected individual. I also am sure it took a very special person to win your heart. Please know that we are always available if you need our support during this difficult time. Our home here in Fredericksburg is always open
Friday, March 22, 2013
Our sympathies and prayers go out to Sally and all of Bob's family. We were blessed to have known Bob. He definitely was one of a kind.
Sunday, March 17, 2013
We enjoyed getting to know Bob. He was a kind, unpretentious man. Don especially liked to talk with him about airplanes and the Air Force. Sally, your eulogy was beautiful and a wonderful tribute to Bob.
Wednesday, March 13, 2013
My uncle Bob was a great man. He was full of honor and respect, proof chivalry is not dead. I have a fond memory of a hiking trip as a small girl. I begged to be picked up. My own father wasnt there to carry me but my uncle Bob was. He was the most positive male figure in my life. Offering encouragement, instilling bravery and showing love. All through simple kind acts and gentle well chosen words. I am proud to have known him. His loving treatment of my aunt and constant concern for others, and heroic service to our nation are just a few wonderful things about my dear uncle. He was a pioneer in his field and inspiration to all who knew him.

Aloha nui loa Uncle Bob
Saturday, March 09, 2013
Dear Bob,
We knew you as a good neighbor, kind and quiet spoken. We did enjoy the times we spent with you and Sally, but we did not know you well. Today we know you so much better through the wonderful service that your lovely Sally had for you. Your were a true gentleman, patriot, accomplished officer, and well respected. As Sally eulogized - yours was a life well lived.
Friday, March 08, 2013
My condolences and prayers to the Uebelacker Family and Friends. Bob's patience, professionalism and caring leadership will be missed. It was an honor working with a Great American and Veteran.

Friday, March 08, 2013
Bob stopped by work just before Christmas. We talked about all the doctors' visits he had coming up and how grateful he was for his wife's support. He told me to be thankful for every day. Bob was a nice man and I'm glad I was able to work with him.
Friday, March 08, 2013
Bob was always a pleasure to work with, and I'm glad I had the chance to know him. He'll be missed very much. My deepest sympathies and prayers.

Sally,
I and all the members of the Space Development & Test Directorate were deeply saddened at Bob's passing. A true patriot and professional, Bob graced our unit with his steady hand, technical expertise, unparalleled dedication, and warm, unassuming personality. His dedication to our mission was only surpassed by his passion to help and mentor the people with whom he so ably served.
We will cherish his memory and will have Bob, you, and your family forever in our hearts and prayers.

I first met Sally in the Fall of 1978 while stationed on Kirtland AFB, New Mexico and she and Bob were stationed at Andersen AB, Guam. Since then our lives have crossed constantly, and I was lucky to have the chance to visit with Bob in his home here just before he left for Boston and the "surgery of hope"! Bob was always "steady on the stick" and unflappable. He liked to present himself as quiet and reserved; however, he was always "engaged" in the world around him. He did not offer his opinion easily or often, but he knew what was going on -- no big deal in sharing it! However, if prompted for his thoughts -- hold on tight as you would get a well thought out argument, on point and very logical. My first reaction after one of his "sharing sessions" was usually....why didn't I think of that?
Sally: Mary Lou and I will deeply miss having Bob in our lives, but we are looking forward to continuing to have you to explore the world with in our adventures in the future! We are here to help in whatever way we can...our deepest sympathies for you and your family!

My deepest sympathies. I will miss him greatly.
Tuesday, March 05, 2013
I worked with Bob at Kirtland. We traveled on several 1-2 week training courses where I really got to know Bob. I enjoyed our conversations over lunches and dinners together. He was always at the track after class getting in his 10,000 steps for the day. Bob was well-liked by all, always had interesting stories to tell, and I will miss his friendship. My sincerest condolences, Paul Ackerman
Sunday, March 03, 2013
I've known Bob since around 1974, when I was first stationed at Ellsworth AFB in Rapid City, SD. Bob was a co-pilot and I was a navigator. Although we never crewed together, our squadron was small enough for us all to get to know one another. I remember Bob as a quiet, reserved, young officer who was nice to everyone - even to us navigators - ha! Though I left the USAF in 1977, Bob stayed in and had a stellar career. Bob and I were re-acquainted as neighbors in New Mexico in 2007 .... how coincidental is that?! And Bob was still the nicest guy - he hadn't changed in all those years - not a bit! With all that happens in our lives - careers, families, etc. - it speaks volumes about an individual's character that he remained unchanged and unaffected - a true gentleman, soft spoken and a good friend. Marcie and I will miss him. Sally, our hearts go out to you during this difficult time. If there is anything we can do for you, as your friends and neighbors, please do not hesitate to call us.
Sunday, March 03, 2013
Sally,
We just wanted to offer our sincerest sympathy to you and tell you how sorry we are for your loss. Bob was a great guy and a great neighbor and we enjoyed the times we were able to get together with both of you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

He was a man of few words, the quiet one. Rob, you will be greatly missed, but not forgotten! Until we meet again - with love. Diane
Saturday, March 02, 2013
Dear Sally, and the Uebelacker Family - I want you to know how incredibly sad I am for your loss. It's hard to even think of Bob in the past tense. He was a pleasure to work with, always there when you needed help; just an all around great guy with an admirable work ethic, never one to boast, even considering all the amazing things he has done and seen. There were times when he'd tell a story and I'd just think 'Whoa. Bob has done so much! I need to pump him for more stories!' The Space Ops Branch won't be the same without Bob. This is just my first assignment with the Air Force, and I can tell you I feel lucky to have known and worked with Bob for these past two years, and I will miss him very much. I'm praying for you through this difficult time, and hope you accept my sincere condolences.

Sally and the Uebelacker Family

With deep sadness in my heart please accept my condolences on the passing of your husband, brother and my best friend for many years of my life.

The memories of our friendship will live with me forever.

To all who have written such wonderful memories of my brother I thank you. Robby was somebody I always looked up to and who was there for me during my own struggles with cancer; I will be forever grateful to both him and Sally during that difficult time in my life. Rob showed such grace and courage during his own battle but never let on just how difficult his journey was. He has now made his final journey and I hope he knew before he left how much he was loved by his wife, friends and family. I am so grateful that I was able to talk to him before his surgery and tell him how much I loved him.

My brother Robby. Friday nights playing "sock" when mom and dad were out. We all had many rug burns on our knees from the knee races around the dining room table. We lived in the typical 1950's/60's neighborhood; lots of kids and many games on the street corner. We skated all Winter and went to many hockey games on the "outside" rinks. We spent our summers at Lincoln Park. He built model rockets and we would follow him up to the reservoir to launch them. He was an encourager and became an amazing man. I will miss his voice calling and saying "hey reet what ya been up to". When we gather now we will be forever short 1. I love you Robby.
Monday, February 25, 2013
Bob was a very accomplished man, a good person and a good neighbor. It's sad to know that he's gone.
The comments of his long time friends are a strong testimony to the depth of his untimely loss.
Our sincere condolences to you, Sally.

I was so sorry to hear about Bob's passing. As a classmate since we were in the same junior high homeroom together and friends throughout high school it is a great loss to our Denfeld class of 1966. We knew him as Bob, Robbie, UBE and he was a friend, a class act and a humble, quiet leader who will be missed.

Sally and all the Uebelacker Family,
Bob and I send our thoughts and prayers to all of you. You and Bob were just great friends to Mom & Dad Clarke. It is so hard to believe someone that young is taken from us. God be with you

I was sorry to hear of the loss of my childhood friend.

His knock on our door asking my Mom if Charlie Bug could come out and play meant a day of climbing trees, skipping rocks on Lincoln Creek, a game of kick the stick, skating/hockey and scaling the heights of Elephant Rock. Even at that age he expressed his desire to fly planes.

Although we lost contact, I was proud to read of his many accomplishments and more importantly the joy he found with his wife and family members.

I will always remember Robbie with affection.

My condolences to Sally and the Uebelacker kids,

Dear Sally,
I am so sorry to hear that Bob passed away. It was an honor to work with Bob and yourself on the ISDC conference and in our AIAA activities. He was such a tremendous guy. He was so incredibly optimistic and cheerful even after all the stress and long hours we put in, and always did such a great job on everything. I will pray for you and your family.
Sincerely,
-- Bob

Dear Sally, I was so sad to hear of Bob's passing. He was a great guy and he is part of my best memories in high school. He was always smiling and a friend to everyone. I am so sorry that I didn't get to see him in recent years, but I will always remember him with fondness. Warmly, Margaret (St. Marie) Honigman

Dear Sally,
Aleli & I are so sorry for your loss. These photos are wonderful. We will be thinking of you and praying that you find comfort in the beautiful marriage & life you shared. It is an example for each of us. I'm also personally grateful for Bob's service in the Air Force in active duty. Please keep in touch as your friendship is appreciated and enjoyed.
Yours,

Sally, you and Bob have always been high on our list of favorite people. Our love and our prayers go out to you. I like the words in the obituary. They are reminiscent of those which eulogized the great revolutionary patriot Thomas Nelson, "Soldier, Patriot and Christian Gentleman." Bob will indeed be missed. Since I first read those words on Gen Nelson's stone in the Grace Episcopal Church yard in Yorktown, VA,
I have thought what more can you say.

I hope it comforts you to know that we share the pain you feel at this sad time. You will have a time of darkness and sorrow as you adjust but there are better days to come.

Sally - I am so very sorry for your loss. There are no words to comfort you right now but I would like to share a poem given to me when my mother died. I still read it from time to time and it brings a peace to me.

Native American Prayer
I give you this one thought to keep -
I am with you still - I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning's hush
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not think of me as gone -
I am with you still - in each new dawn.

Love, Terri

Sally,
I am deeply saddened for your loss. It was indeed a pleasure to know Bob, as it is to know you. Bob had the kind of military career many of us envy, yet he served with grace and absolute commitment. Our country is undeniably stronger because of his service, and we as a nation are blessed to have military couples like you two who gave your lives to this noble cause. I know you will be strong for him but please know you have friends far and wide standing by. Bob was a lucky man to mated with you, and we spoke of it on more than one occasion. See you soon...

Sally: On behalf of your many friends and professional associates in the AFSFA Pete Magwood Chapter and from Marie-Claire and I please allow me to extend our most sincere condolences on Bob's passing. He fought the good fight right to the end and set an example that many of us will follow by not taking a "No" answer in early treatment diagnoses and recommendations and by doing everything possible to attack the cancer. Thanks for all you did to support that voyage and stay by his side.
Bob will be sorely missed. He is among many of the unsung heros who served our country with distinction and preserved the peace. May he now rest in peace.

Dear Sally, my heart broke when I received your Christmas letter and subsequent emails about Bob's illness. To lose a vibrant, fun loving and caring husband and friend at such a young age, is beyond belief. Bob was the love of your life and I pray you will be comforted knowing you both are loved by your family and friends. I will miss him.
