Robert Adamiec - Class Of 1961

Robert Adamiec

   Robert’s wife writes, “Robert Adamiec, my husband, passed away very suddenly in 2/2001 at 56 years of age. He was emerging from a plane in Cincinnati, Ohio, on a consulting assignment position with Procter & Gamble and dropped dead of a heart attack. His first and only heart attack took him. He left behind me and his daughter who was a college student in Colorado and was 20 years old at the time. Bob had graduated UCLA, served in the U.S. Army for 3 years and emerged as a Captain. We lived in Taiwan for the last of the 2 years. He then received his MBA while we lived in Indianapolis, Indiana, and his CPA while residing here in suburban Philadelphia. He started, following the service, in the management training program of Procter & Gamble (1968) with computers when they had a huge room to themselves. We were moved several times by various corporations and Bob always improved himself with each new position. He had thought of obtaining a Doctorate but we realized it would not improve his job potential so he spent some spare moments studying investing to improve our nest egg. Bob was a very intelligent young man and died much too early in his life.”
