Robert was a smart and fun guy. We were fortunate to have him as a professor @ UArts in the early 90s. I still have my Human Factors and Industrial Design Engineering books from his class, and I went on to teach Human Factors a couple years ago. He helped me and others gain confidence and self efficacy in becoming professional designers. Robert leaves behind a legacy of knowledge and optimism.
