Stempfel Jr., Dr. Robert "Bob" - Miami  
STEMPFEL, DR. ROBERT "Bob" Jr., nationally known pediatrician and former director of the Mailman Center for Child Development at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, died on November 3, 2014. He was 90. Bob was born on July 13, 1924 in Indianapolis, Indiana to his parent's Bernice Wiltshire and Robert Stempfel Senior. Bob always had a thirst for nowledge in both his personal and professional life. His higher education started at Wabash College, but was cut short when Bob enlisted in the army in 1943. While still in the army Bob went on a blind date and met his future bride Sarah Jane Smith. They married on June 7, 1951 while Bob was in medical school at Vanderbilt University. After medical school, the young couple moved to Sweden where Bob participated in a research fellowship at the Children's Clinic in Stockholm. When they returned to the US in 1955 Bob began a pediatric residency at Vanderbilt and then a fellowship at Johns Hopkins University. In 1958, Bob became a pediatric endocrinologist and professor at Duke University. In 1968, he accepted the position of professor and chairman for the department of pediatrics at the University of California Davis. Finally Bob finished his career as the director of the Mailman Center for Child Development at the University of Miami. In his years in Miami, Bob dedicated his work to children with developmental disabilities and brought together a distinguished faculty that would impact the lives of children then and for years to come. He retired in 1993. Bob was naturally inquisitive and always tried to learn new things. He put his all into his work and equal effort into his hobbies. He was an avid fly fisherman who made his own rods and flies; a collector of first addition books and rare coins; a marksman who enjoyed making his own bullets; a low handicap golfer who loved the game; and an accomplished photographer whose works will be one of his many legacies. Bob is survived by his wife Sarah; his daughter and son-in-law, Anna and Gary Zatkoff; his son Ted Stempfel; his grandchildren Joe, Kathy, and Roger Zatkoff; his sister and brother-in-law, Susan and Charles Kinnaird; and his sister's children Jim, Robert, Christi, Keith, and Ed.
