Robert G. Lape '53

Amherst ’53 lost Bob Lape on October 16, 2006 after a valiant battle with stomach and liver cancer.  He had lived his entire life in the Columbus, OH, area, where his spirit and selfless dedication to family and friends earned great respect.  A lifelong Columbus friend noted at his death that “Bob lived his life as part of a group called the Great Friends, where his tremendous loyalty and dedication found its kindred spirits. Unfortunately this spirit was taken from us too early.”
