Not sure what to say?

Rest in Peace and my sympathy to your family! You had fantastic break-throughs in the electronic calculator world. Ex Friden service tech from the Manhattan, NYC office.

To all that knew Bob Ragen,
I grieve with you all in Bob's passing.
I never got to meet him, but know of him so much through his legacy in the world of electronics, most specifically his work in bringing electronic calculators to Friden. My heart goes out to his family and all that knew him, and pray that all will be soothed by the warm memories of their time with him.
Rick Bensene, Curator, The Old Calculator Museum

Rest in Peace Bob. And many blessings to the Ragen family. I worked on many Friden EC 130 and 132's while working for Friden in the 1960's. They were great machines

Deb - I am sending hugs for all of you via Pop. May you sense peace and comfort from your memories and family and extended family. Love, Don

Dear Tom, Debi, Kyle and Chelsea,
