Obituary Condolences

Robert S. Landauer, Jr., died on Monday, (February 16, 2004) in Sarasota, FL, of Lewy Bodies disease, with his loving family by his side. Bob was the founder and longtime president of R. S. Landauer, Jr. and Company, a pioneer and leading provider of medical dosimetry services world-wide, as well as president of other divisions of Technical Operations, Inc. He will be remembered as a caring, generous and always supportive father, husband and employer. After serving in World War II, Bob trained as a health physicist at the University of Chicago. The leadership he provided to his company was marked by an unusual combination of technical ingenuity, meticulous attention to accuracy as well as a uniquely honest, humble and effective approach to sales and service. His business which is now known as Landauer, Inc. continues to this day to benefit millions of health care workers and patients. Born in Chicago in 1924, Bob also lived in Highland Park, Park Forest and Olympia Fields, IL, Weston and Nantucket, MA, and Sarasota, FL, where he will be remembered by very many as a loyal, wise and entertaining friend and neighbor. He will be sorely missed by his wife, Janice; and by five children from former marriages, with the late Rosemary, and the present Mae Castello; Jill and her husband, Peter Hundreiser of Seattle, WA, and Annmarie Tallas and her husband, Peter of Weston, MA, William and his wife, Laurel of Sunnyvale, CA, Madeline of Hove, England, and Daniel and his wife, Roberta of Glastonbury; as well as by his brother, Thomas and his wife, Lynn Streeter of Boulder, CO; and seven (soon to be eight) grandchildren; three nieces; a nephew; and five step-grandchildren. Bob is predeceased by his brother, Joseph of Danville, CA. A public memorial service followed by a private burial will be held at the First Parish in Weston, MA at 10 a.m. on Saturday, February 21. Sometime following that date a separate memorial service will be held in Sarasota, FL. The J.S. Waterman Funeral Home in Wellesley, MA has charge of arrangements. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL, for Lewy Bodies research or to the Hospice of Southwest Florida.
