In the early 1960's, Bob and I were room-mates at ASU. We had some great times. Of course we were much younger then!

I am now 70 years old and living in Montana. In 1961, Bob, Ken Lajudice, Mike Barrick and I took a long hike into the Superstition Mountains spending several days in a quest for knowledge related to the Lost Dutchman Mine.

During the early 70's I decided to write down what we experienced during that trip thinking that some day, someone might be interested in our story—a story about four invincible 20-somethings with more energy than brains!

Somewhere along the line the manuscript was packed away and forgotten until, several years later, I mentioned the adventure to my sons. For several years after hearing the story they kept pressing me to print my recollections of the adventure. I am finally going to do just that. It will be published sometime this spring. A great time was had by all on our foray into the wilderness and I hope Bob, wherever he is, has been looking over my shoulder as I toiled away at finishing the project after all these years. And, I hope he is smiling to himself as he recalls our great adventure.

See you somewhere up the trail my friend. Perhaps just a little north of Weavers Needle.

Just spending time looking up old acquaintences and saw this. I worked at the Republic sports desk with Bob and played wiffle ball in his backyard with him, basketball before we would have to go to the sports desk in the afternoons or on 'lunch' breaks at night. He touched my life only briefly, but I considered him a friend long after I left the Republic for other pursuits.

when i started working at the republic in 1968 as a young punk, bob became my mentor, teacher and friend. guys at the republic like bob jacobsen, frank gianelli, dave hicks, steve weston and eger were guys i looked up to. i followed in his foot steps too at ASU as a sports editor and later became a staff writer for the arizona magazine. he was always there to help with a kind word of encouragement. later, when i became a magazine editor in the bay editor, i would make a point of visiting him whenever the suns or sun devils were in town. bob was always so helpful and supportive of everything i did. i'm sorry. i just learned of his death and am deeply saddened. i still think of him often.

My deepest sympathies to Bob's Family. I spent a great amount of time with Bob when I worked with the Phoenix Giants in the late 1970's. We would talk hours at a time about baseball and ASU. We also played a lot of golf together and shared great stories. We have lost a true treasure.

I will miss Bob, I really enjoyed his insight into the game and his passion for ASU Baseball. I can't imagine ASU Baseball without Bob.

Bob was ASU Baseball

We just learned of Bob's passing. Alice and I send our deepest sympathies and regards to Linda and the family. Bob and I attended ASU together, working on the State Press. When I returned to ASU as the sports information director in 1968, Bob was on the Sun Devil beat. I remember his thorough work in seeking out the correct information and sharing that with his readers in an easy to understand manner. I also remember sharing many a fine meal when traveling throughout the "original" WAC with Bob and Bob (Bob Crawford of the Gazette) and when at home, visiting the neighborhood Mexican restaurants for lunch. Bob was a good friend, an honest, fair and accurate writer and will be missed. Our prayers are with the Eger family.

My daughter Gail and I would like to extend our sympathy to the Eger family, especially Emil, Winona and Susan. Our families have deep roots in Yuma and we are sad to learn of the loss of son and brother, the man we knew as 'Bobby' for so many years.

My condolences to the Eger family. I knew Bob through his sister, Suzi. Suzi and I went to Yuma High School together. I did get to meet Bob's children, and Suzi and I made a trip to Rocky Point, and stayed with Bob and his wife, Linda. Suzi thought the world of her big brother. Mr. and Mrs. Eger senior raised 2 outstanding children whom we, their friends, have enjoyed knowing and benefitting from their giftedness. My prayers are with you.

Linda, Diane, and to our son-in-law Ron, please accept our sincere condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult period. We know that Bob will always be remembered for his kindness, sharing, and love for his family.
