Robert Leopold

Robert (Bob) Leopold, 93 years old, passed away peacefully at home in Livingston, New Jersey. Bob, a true gentleman, could be described by many roles, including husband, father, grandfather, volunteer, veteran, Mayor, engineer, among others. Bob grew up in Weehawken and Union City, New Jersey. He had fond memories of his years attending the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where he obtained both his bachelors and masters in electrical engineering, interrupted by his enlistment in the U.S. Navy to join the efforts to defeat the Nazis in World War II. On his first day of combat duty, he says, the Nazis promptly surrendered. Bob once hoped for a naval career but did not obtain acceptance to the Naval Academy at Annapolis. (Bob had said that he could not get the required nomination from his congressional representative or senator because he was Jewish.)
