1/Jan/1921 - 12/Oct/2018 Bob Stutz was born and raised in Corvallis Oregon. On graduating from Oregon State in 1943, he entered the Naval Reserve Officers program, and was commissioned an Ensign in September. Diagnosed with TB just prior to overseas deployment, he spent most of 1944 in a Navy TB ward. This was a defining period of his life. For on seeing too many mostly healthy men give up, decline and die, he determined to "keep moving", and succeeded for over 70 years. On release, Bob entered the Biochemistry PhD program at U. Wisconsin, where he could also be under the treatment of noted TB specialist Dr. Helen Dickie. On 1/July/1945 he married Mary Awdry Radcliffe of Klamath Falls, Oregon (12/June/1922 - 8/Dec/1997).
