In Memoriam: Bob Kingsland

July 02, 2012

It is with great sadness that we report that Bob Kingsland passed away on June 22.  Bob was a world-class welder who made very complicated vacuum chambers for several of our faculty. Bob also did sophisticated aluminum welding for the muon g-2 experiment. Bob was central to the development of the Student Training Facility in the SIF, where he was beloved by generations of his students. Bob's celebration of life will be on Wednesday, July 11th, at 3 PM at the First Parish Unitarian Universalist church in Scituate (330 First Parish Road, Scituate, MA 02066). A reception at the Lighthouse Keeper's in Cohasset (15 Lighthouse Lane, Cohasset, MA 02025) will follow. Carpooling is recommended. Visit the Richardson-Gaffey website to read about Bob's remarkable life, leave a message, and for further memorial service details.
