Robert William Downer - July 1944 to January 2014

Bob peacefully climbed the steps to Heaven to join other family members. He had many accomplishments but was most proud of being an Eagle Scout, listed in Who's Who in American Colleges, and two beautiful daughters.

His work was done and went to enjoy the mansion built for him in Heaven where we are sure the driveway is paved with Florida sand.

A celebration of his life will be held in Illinois in May.

He leaves behind two daughters, Beth Oleks of California and Nancy Downer of Boston; two sisters, Judy Bergandi of Nevada and Mary Powers of Princeton; as well as many friends.
