space program. Robert worked for over 20 years as a Software
Programmer. His hard work earned him the Silver Snoopy Award in

Systems program. Eventually working his way up to managing teams for
software deployment on shuttle operations.

  4. He loved his daughter immensely, and she loved him with thecsame intensity. His life was complete because Monica loved him more than any daughter I can think of. He loved her so much, too. I am so sad, but I am so grateful they had each other. No one could have done better, and they were a true team. He was a remarkably kind, humorous man. He bore his problems better than most. The world has lost a wonderful man, because no man could have raised such a wonderful daughter without being his amazing self.
