Bob was the manager of the Chicago Tribune's Financial Staff in the late sixties. I joined the staff from the Classified Department. Bob was an oustanding manager. He provided valueable insight into advertising sales that I carried with me through my career in national magazine ad sales. Working with Bob, Charlie Shanley and Jack Specht was a learning experience and a joy.
In recent years, Connie, my wife, and I have had the pleasure of meeting Bob's wonderful granddaughter, Sheila. It brought back my memories of the Tribune years. Connie and I have Bob and the Eder family in our prayers. God bless you.

Many mornings Bob rode with me from Oak Park to the Chicago Tribune parking lot. We had great conversations and he was a great guy. My prayers go with him and his family.

Must I remind you of Bob's one failure in life. When I was a kid he and your uncle Bill tried to teach me to swin. Guess what, I still cannot swim. I am known as his favorite girl cousin on his father's side! Mary Eder

To Laura and others,

Your dad was gentle and a gentleman. We have fond memories of both your Mom and Dad, and their many kindnesses they spread around Long Beach C.C. and St. Andrews Village.

To the Eders,

Sorry to read about your dad. I have many fond memories of both your mom and your dad, of course. Hours of basketball in the backyard... Sitting in the living room with your dad watching the Sox games... Hanging out on the front porch in the summer... Your mother and father were always great to all of us who hung around your house -- which is saying something considering there were already seven of you there!

My love to you all.
