|My Uncle Rob was a formative person as my brothers, Joe, Ben, and Andy and I grew up. For us, as kids living in California, he was our funny and sophisticated uncle who lived a bon vivant life we really couldn't even imagine. It was a big deal when he came to visit. He liked to sleep in and we would wait anxiously for him to wake up because then the stories began. He taught me many things; a few were to not take yourself too seriously, to enjoy vocabulary and good grammar, and to go and see the world outside of the United States. He will be remembered and missed.|

|I have started a memorial webpage for my brother on my site.
Via Google you can find it along with memoirs of our growing up in Belmont. I've listed 25 places where he skied along with his postcard notes for each. I have many fond tales to post since I have saved all his correspondence. He left four nephews not 3 as listed.

|Would like to be able to find and access joe Nix's web site that he refers to.
I have some wonderful photos of RB.
Did someone retrieve the many postcards that RB sent to his friends, many of which were returned to him and which he enjoyed rereading, remembering, in his own words, his experiences from near and far?
