I worked with Robert back in the late sixties as a draftsman for Bethlehem Steel (FSC). I was only an apprentice at the time but he was a full fledged Detailer. We both worked on the Martin Tower project. What I remember from back then was Robert was a real nice guy and a straight shooter.
My condolences go out to his family.
RIP Robert and may God bless.
