It is with sadness this holiday season we say goodbye and "God Bless" to our friend Gene! Bob's Digital career was in IT Operations in Maynard and Concord.
Thanks to those of you who sent notes to Bob during his hospice time, they were really appreciated.
Bob was an ever curious scientist, earning a BS (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) and Ph. (Brown University) in Physics and writing his thesis on magnetism because it was the hardest problem he could find.
After a time as a professor at Bucknell University, Bob continued in this vein throughout his professional life, developing magnetic recording technology at the Sperry Research Center, Polaroid, in Storage Systems at Digital Equipment Corp., and at Quantum.
Please pass this information on to anyone that would be interested.
