Gene and Bob moved to Phoenix in 1951. He finished his education at Arizona State University and became a CPA in the same year. The last years of his career were spent as head of the Trust Tax Department of the Valley National


Bob is survived by his wife; Gene, his sister; Arlyne (Ed) Malmstron, two favorite cousins, Sharon Schultz of Rapid City, SD, and Kay Wagner of Portland, Oregon.
