Robert C. Riddell

West Point, 1969

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Bill Bahr, USMA '69 on January 17, 2015:

From the "Howitzer" -- 1969

Robert Carney Riddell, St. Petersburg, Florida. A-4

"Bob, known throughout A-4 for his dimples and long legs, was a real Casanova. His girls changed as often as the seasons. He especially remembers Wirt Robinson Memorial. Always known as quiet and shy, he still owes a certain hotel from Armed Forces Day Yearling Year. On a sunny day without a hat he shines out in a crowd. Although diseased by constant "fainting Spells," Bob managed his four year tour quite well.

"Lacrosse 4; Astronomy Club 3, 2, 1; Rocket Society 2, 1; Spanish Club 2, 1; Russian Club 2, 1; Fine Arts Forum 3, 2. Infantry."

USMA classmate, may you rest in peace.
