Robert (Bob) Rosene

Our chapter mourns the loss of Bob Rosene, who, together with his wife Joyce, have been faithfully supporting our chapter since its inception. Their contributions were crucial to starting the chapter and sustaining it through its early years. Bob frequently attended chapter events and invited student leaders to his home to facilitate deeper discussion. With each new generation of students, Bob shared his experience rebuilding Okinawa with the Navy Seabees. It was because of these experiences that Bob recognized the value in EWB’s true work — to build strong relationships with communities and then work closely together to achieve the engineering goals. Read more about Bob and his work with the university in this article by the CEGE Department.
