Sorry to report that one of my Class of 1957 classmates, Bob Stewart from Bellevue High School (who took a year at Stanford University before coming to Washington and pledging with me), passed away four days ago in Scottsdale, Arizona from the effects of a cancerous tumor upon which he was being treated.
Bob graduated a year ahead of the rest of us, due to his head start down in Palo Alto, and progressed into a career as a fighter pilot with the U. S. Air Force.
At his request, knowing of the potential that he wouldn’t make it through treatment, there will be no services honoring his life and the contributions he made in our national security. We all owe those who have served their country……. as their vocation….a special gratitude.
