Bob, 81, was born in Philadelphia and moved to the York area in the 1960s, arriving first as an intern before becoming a resident surgeon at the hospital for four years.
In 1968, the military drafted him into the Navy, where he spent two years serving as a general surgeon during the Vietnam War.
Bob came back to York County and worked at York Hospital as a plastic surgeon for the next 30-some years. He retired in 2002.
As he nears his 82nd birthday, Bob isn’t slowing down. He’s planning a mission trip to India in January, and he still volunteers locally in several organizations through Aldersgate United Methodist Church in York Township.
“I just don’t like to sit still,” Bob says. “I like to always have a project I’m working on.”
