Chairman’s Corner

Robert “Bob” Schreiber ‘64 | 09.06.42 – 08.22.15

robert-schreiberI 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…

Dear Marty,
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.
Helen Schreiber
Robert (Bob) Schreiber “64 died August 22, 2015 after a long, brave battle with multiple sclerosis. The 1963 CORNELL-COLUMBIA game ball designating him “Most Dedicated” remained a prized possession, as well as, a theme throughout his life. He passed it down to his son, Nate ’95, along with his friendship with Gary Wood, whose son, Eric ’95 is a fraternity brother and friend to this day.
