Robert is definitely an inspiration to me and the rest of the Bork family. He will be greatly missed.

Thanks to alphabetical order, Bob and I met and became friends when the Korean War broke out, and as Marine Reserve second lieutenants we were called to active duty at Quantico in September of 1950 and placed side by side in the same platoon. At the time he was a very liberal Democrat who used to rag me about being a Republican. He had a marvelous sense of humor even in dire times,and that coupled with an extraordinarily quick mind instantly brought defeat to any would be adversary. From 1956 to 1959,when I was a Time correspondent in Chicago, we saw each other often with our families. Bob was with the Kirkland Ellis law firm, and after I returned to New York to write for Sports Illustrated, I got a call from him. He said that he wanted to do more in life than be a partner in a law firm, live in Winnetka and be driven to work by a chauffeur. Instead he wanted to write, and he wanted to write for Fortune. I sent a note to Duncan Norton-Taylor, the editor, and after interviewing Bob he imediately offered him a job. That doesn't happen to everyone, even anyone. At the same time, Bob got an offer to teach a Yale Law School,and he took that post because he said that he could always write while he taught but he couldn't teach while he was a writer. Again we saw one another from time to time. The last time I saw him was at our 50th class reunion at Quantico, and as always he was irrepressible in the best sense of the word. We occasionally talked on the phone, and I remember one thing he said hat might be of interest to historians. He said that had Antonin Scalia been nominated for the Supreme Court before he was, Scalia would have encountered the fire storm and rejection, and then he(Bob), nominated afterwards, would have been approved. What ever the twists and turns in life, Robert H. Bork more than left his mark. My heart and prayers go out to the family. God bless you, Bob

Sorry for the lost of Mr. Bork. Eccl 9:5 says the dead " are conscious of nothing" so it's very comforting to know he is just it a deep sleep.
