I had a close feeling relationship with Bob growing out of our proximity during some formative years. Although after H.S., we were in touch only on FB and reunions where he sought me out to catch up, Bob reminded me of our bond as kids when he saw me in 2011 at our 50th. When we were 14, his family and mine were charter members of Birchwood, the swim and tennis club. I was especially close to his parents who were unusually warm and supportive of me which was particularly welcome as my father had just died. Bob's family became a role model for me.
When we were 14 at our first Turn Around Dance, my mother drove me and Bob and our dates. Our families were charter members of the same temple so we saw each other every Sunday and forged a close relationship through Arnie Wolf during our small, intimate confirmation training and at a party afterwards at my house. In high school, Bob, Claudia and I were paired in every class together. His warmth and sensitivity will be greatly missed by me. I feel terrible he is not physically on this earth.

My name is Claudia Harris Brown. Bob and I were confirmed in the same confirmation class at Congregation Solel in Highland Park, Illinois in 1959. We had remained in contact all through the years and reminisced over our class memories, especially those of Rabbi Arnold Jacob Wolf. I sent Bob a New Year's note and did not hear from him, and today it occurred to me that he would have written in answer by now. I am deeply saddened to learn of his passing. Bob was a giant in everything that he did. His height was only an outward manifestation of how large was his kindness,his warmth,his intelligence,his love of life. I last saw him in Chicago when I came from California for our 50th high school reunion and he and I had breakfast together and enjoyed catching up. The world has lost a very dear man and he will not be forgotten by any who knew him. I send my deepest condolences to his family.

Bob was a man of valor, caring and thoughtful; always kind. I am so grateful that he joined my lunch with Ellen last year, and then convinced me to join him in a Chartreuse aperitif. His toast? "to life". My favorite of Bob's many virtues was his obvious love and devotion to Ellen. His love for his children & grandchildren was no less. His passing leaves a hole in the universe. Thank you, Ellen for giving me the opportunity to know him.

Bob was one of those rare people who, even in childhood, was always warm, caring, extremely competent, interesting and a very compelling personality. I'm not surprised to read of his many accomplishments, and am very sorry to know he's no longer here. My condolences to the family. shelley
