    So sorry for your loss of a real good man. I remembered Robert well for decades as a friend in school and Pike-Sandy. He was quite the mile runner for Embarrass High School and thanks for his Army service. A retired superintendent told me last year that Robert was his best furnace operator at Eveleth Taconite.
