This reader, and hosts of friends in all walks of life, wish to thank you for the excellent and accurate coverage afforded the late Bob Ormsby at his passing.

As Mr. Ormsby’s secretary during one phase of his phenomenal “rise to the top” I, and other associates, had the daily benefit of his unfailing upbeat personality which never changed even in the most strenuous situations. I can’t remember ever hearing him raise his voice to anyone.

When recalling my Lockheed days in Mr. Ormsby’s office, there’s one memory that makes me smile some 45 years later. Returning to work following a maternity leave, I was confident enough of Mr. Ormsby’s good humor to bring the new arrival with me. Sure enough, he was delighted and introduced the tiny guest around the office while I filled out paperwork. What a guy!

May he rest in peace.
