I received a note from Helen Schreiber regarding the passing of her husband Bob which I have included below, along with a link to his obituary. I took the liberty of highlighting a sentence in Helen’s correspondence which I felt was poignant and relevant to the bond we all share as teammates who took to the gridiron or simply love the game…
It has been just over six months since Rob died and I am still dealing with the details of his death. I’ve noticed that he was receiving emails from the Cornell Football Association and several of the emails dealt with the passing of former players. I do not know whether you do this for all players, but I do know that the privilege of playing football all four years at Cornell was a key component of the life Rob went on to live. If it is appropriate, you might send a notice of his passing to your members.
Thank you for the work you do and for taking the time to read this.
Our sincere thoughts, prayers, and condolences go out from the Cornell Football Family to his wife Helen and the Schreiber family.
