Robert Andrew Newhoff Obituary
Born in Chicago, Bob was raised in Elmhurst, Illinois. He graduated from Northwestern University with an Electrical Engineering Degree in 1961. Bob was a member of Triangle Fraternity. After college, he married and moved to California and was employed by various companies in the aero-space industry. He was then recruited by NASA and spent years here in the US and overseas working on projects for them. Later in life, Bob joined the faculty of Poly-Technical High School in Sun City, California, as a math instructor. Over the years, Bob served as a volunteer policeman in Orange County and Burbank. He once delivered a baby in the back seat of someone's car. When asked by the dispatcher if it was a boy or girl, Bob replied, "Too shook to look!" Recently, Bob finished serving a term as a member of the Burbank City Council. Always a jokester, he was ready, in any situation, with an appropriate 'one-liner'. He was a 'Master' Bridge player and loved puzzles of any kind. He was preceded in death by his second wife, Anne. He is survived by his children, Brooke E. (Larry) Salaz and Aaron West (Gloria) Newhoff and his sisters, Terry Johnson and Linda (Herald) Brundage.
