I don't have an obituary to share yet, but I just received news that Bob Vollmer, who has been mentioned on this site previously, passed away this morning at 104. You may remember that he retired just a couple of years ago. I will share more as I get further word.

A news report from when he was retiring.

I realize now that this is not from when he was retiring but is instead a feature on him when he was 99.

Loved the stories about this man. As I recall, he stayed pretty darn current with technology. I am still wet behind the years compared to his career, even after 45 years.
