In 1997 he was found dead on a platform near the top of a Titan rocket with a six inch gash in the back of his head. How had he died? Some unusual events following his death have created unsolved mysteries. The flag in this lot was given to his widow Yvonne by NASA. The other items were collected over the years by Bob and then later by his family.
