Bob handed over his road work at Big Bend N P to me most graciously! One of the best jobs I encountered in the DSC. He cast a big shadow in his work with the Feral Highway Administration !

Jean and Family,
Very sorry to hear of the passing of Bob.
I have known Bob since the mid 1960’s when he and I became employees of the National Park Service, Eastern Office of Design and Construction, Philadelphia, PA.
I worked under Bob’s leadership from 1980 til his retirement in 1995. Bob always had the mission of the service, “preserve and protect for future generations”, instilled in each project he was involved in - he always did his utmost to utilize design and construction standards that would accomplish that mission.
It was a pleasure to have known and worked with Bob.
RIP Bob...
God’s Peace to The Schreffler Family.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I briefly worked for Bob at the Denver Service Center and he gave me the opportunity to work at Blue Ridge Parkway early in my career. Bob passed on to me the values that every Landscape Architect in the NPS needs to learn and I am grateful for the opportunity to have known him.

God bless you,

Dear Jean and Family,
We were very sorry to hear of Bob's passing. We offer our deepest sympathy to you and your family. Bob first hired me to work with him and his NPS Eastern Roads and Trail team. I will always be grateful for all that he taught me about the traditional National Park Service values and the importance of preserving and protecting the aesthetics and character of our National Parks. He was a great mentor and I have many fond memories of the great projects we were able work on together and our many work trips to the various National Parks. We wish you peace and comfort at this time of sadness.

Bob, like many landscape architects, had an uncanny knack for rallying the planning and design teams to work well and address all the issues in a thorough, yet fun manner. I truly enjoyed working on a number of NPS projects with Bob, and do not have to tell his family and friends what a wonderful man he had become.
