Robert Feldman Lander passed away in Keno, Ore., on April 8, 2010, at the age of 67.
Bob was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on March 2, 1943, and grew up in Ohio and New York.
He attended Cornell University for a short time, but felt the pull of the wide world and left in a mid-winter snowstorm to travel cross-country on a Vespa scooter, wearing a sleeping bag.
He graduated in philosophy in 1965 from the University of California at Berkeley, where he also participated in the free speech movement and began his lifelong involvement in peace and justice movements.
Bob moved from California to New Mexico and then to Quadra Island, British Columbia, where he and his first wife, Jane Allen, built and lived in a geodesic dome next to a remote lake.
Bob later obtained a master's degree in computer science from the University of New Mexico and then went to work at Los Alamos Laboratories.
In 1989, Bob moved to Keno with his second wife, Judy Udkoff Lander, and took a job with Klamath County as the head of the data processing department.
Throughout his life he was an avid outdoorsman and loved sailing, skiing, canoeing, camping and hiking. He also loved fixing things and sharing his knowledge and experience.
Bob is survived by his children, Tonya Lander, Robert Meadows and Daniel and Patrick Staffler; his sister and brother-in-law, Susan Lander and John Barker; cousin, Elinor, and her husband, Norman Horwitz and their children and grandchildren; close friends, Dave Steele and Keith Barr, Judy Udkoff, who was his friend for 45 years; friend and companion, Sheya Rondeau; and many more dear friends.
He was predeceased by his parents, Hazel and Joseph Lander.
Donations in Bob's honor may be made to the Ashland Food Bank or the Klamath-Lake Counties Food Bank.
