Rosalind and her twin sister, Mary '40, along with their brothers Gregory '43 and Dudley '43, moved to Chicago when their father became the rector of St. Chrysostom's Church. Rosalind was a resident of Weston, MA, and was a dedicated volunteer at York Hospital for decades. 1944 Grace Dodge Kirk Camille McDonald Weiss Florence Howell Sheehy died peacefully in Omaha, NE, on December 21, 2015, with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren by her side. She loved her years at Chicago Latin School and always appreciated her wonderful education and beautiful memories. 1950 Robert "Bob" Katz passed away on March 13, 2017. Former president and co-owner of Superior Tanning Co. and former managing partner of Summit Associates, Bob also served as president and long-time board member of JCC Chicago. Bob was a devoted Latin alumnus, parent, grandparent, trustee and volunteer. His service to Latin will long be remembered. We extend our condolences to his friends and family, including wife Barbara Abeles Katz '56, sons David '84 and Larry '87, brother Allan '54, sister-in-law Kathleen Abeles '63, and grandchildren Ella '18, Olivia '21, Juliette '25 and Charles. 1954 Walter "David" Braddock passed away on March 11, 2017, after a long but brave battle with cancer. David was raised in Chicago and spent his high school years in Barrington. He earned a B.S. in chemical engineering at MIT, an MBA at the University of Chicago along with graduate degrees in mathematics and a Ph.D. in economics and finance. After college, he worked for the Standard Oil Company as a fuel chemist, as an economist for the state of Illinois, and then spent the majority of his career working as a college professor. David loved computers. He developed and utilized some of the first software to study the populations of then-endangered wolves and their migratory patterns in the northern Midwest in the 1960s. He was an inventor and pioneer in the use of computers for stock transactions, and he was issued the first patent for a computerized stock exchange. His volunteer work included membership in Kiwanis in Chatham, IL, and the private tutoring of mathematics to junior high and high school students. He was an advocate of lifelong learning. David asked that friends and family remember him by 1) re-dedicating themselves to lifelong learning and the pursuit of truth, 2) planting a tree to help make the earth a better place, and 3) making a donation to your favorite charity and sending a card to the Abraham Lincoln Unitarian Universalist Church to notify his family of your donation in lieu of flowers.
