Scientist though he was, he also enjoyed the theater. I remember he was a member of a group that attended The People's Light and Theater Company's excellent day-long production of "Sister Carrie". It was a day enjoyed by all, none more than Bob.
Bob was a fine man who will be missed.
Although we each had the University of Delaware connection, we built our relationship over the last 25 years via our memberships in and passion for both the Lincoln Club of Delaware, one of the country's oldest and largest clubs dedicated to the legacy of the 16th President, and the Rotary Club of Wilmington, where our focus was community service as well as outstanding programs for our members.
Bob always was curious, thoughtful and engaging. I valued his ethics and integrity, the candor that comes with seniority, and his great sense of humor. Although our relationship never had the occasion to evolve to that inner circle friendship, I felt each of us valued the other, and it was a great privilege to know Bob.
Our condolences to the Stark Family on your loss.
Please know how much you are all in my thoughts and prayers as you experience the loss of your dad. Your father was a good man and my last moments with him were warm and friendly as we discussed a trip down Memory Lane and experienced laughter and tears. He loved each of you very much and expressed to me how proud he was of each of you. Having recently lost my own father, it's my hope you can find comfort in your fondest memories.
Thinking of you all.
