  7. Eileen and Family: I was saddened to hear of Robert’s passing and wanted to share some brief memories. I first met Robert at St. Agnes School in Los Angeles. While we did not keep in touch until we met each other about 10 years ago here in the Torrance area as his daughter, Margaret, was in my son’s (Alan) class at St. James. We have met many times since always discussing the good times and bringing up old classmates from the past. Robert always had a pleasant disposition and we had many laughs about the “good old times”. I will miss our conversations but I know he is smiling at us all at the good times he had. Love.
