<p>
<em>Robert Lee LaFrenz</em> was born to Walter and Lillie LaFrenz in Center, NE, where his early years were spent on the family farm. Bob&rsquo;s rigorous chores instilled a vigorous work ethic he maintained throughout his life.</p>
<p>
As a high school student in Orchard, NE, he was the class president and valedictorian, lettered in baseball and basketball, and became acquainted with a certain young lady named Marvel Goakey.</p>
<p>
Bob studied one year at Wayne State College while awaiting an appointment to the Academy, which was received in July 1951. As a cadet, he effortlessly acclimated to the competitive system, established a reputation as an academic &quot;hive&quot; during Plebe year, and earned class numerals on the wresding team. As a fun-loving individual, Bob appreciated a good laugh and enjoyed the company and competitive friendship of classmates. Once commissioned in the Corps of Engineers, Bob returned to Nebraska and married Marvel in June 1955.</p>
<p>
Bob volunteered to attend Airborne and Ranger Schools and spent three years as a platoon leader with the 317th Engineer Combat Battalion in Hoechst, Germany. Graduate school at Iowa State University followed, and Bob thrust himself into civil and nuclear engineering studies with utmost energy, carrying the maximum course load and undertaking research. Within nine months, he completed a thesis and all other requirements for a master&rsquo;s degree in science. His penchant for goals shortly ensued as he completed exams for a professional engineer license and embarked upon a Ph.D. program.</p>
<p>
Bob&rsquo;s organizational skills enabled him to occasionally engage in handball, bridge, and family activities. His hard work at ISU proved fruitful, for it directly influenced assignments for the remainder ofhis Army and civilian career. In the summer 1961, Bob departed with a Ph.D. to command the 547th Engineer Float Bridge Company in South Korea.</p>
<p>
In 1963, Bob returned to the States and taught nuclear physics in the Department of Electricity at USMA. Life in academia appealed to Bob, for he loved to teach, and the regimen provided time for avocations and an opportunity to be the soccer team assistant coach. Bob and Marvel enlarged their family and adopted two young children, David and Marlee. With a growing commitment in Southeast Asia, Bob was sent to Viet Nam as the staff engineer of I Field Force, with specific responsibilities for roads and airfields in 1967.</p>
<p>
Once stateside, Bob completed GGSC and was assigned to the Army&rsquo;s Explosive Excavation Group at Livermore Laboratory in California. The group studied the feasibility of employing conventional explosives for major excavation. As Deputy Director, Bob planned and supervised large Army projects for railroad cuts in Colorado and Montana and demonstrated the effectiveness of military explosives by creating small harbors in Hawaii and Alaska.</p>
<p>
During his final two years at Livermore, Bob was director of the excavation group.</p>
<p>
In 1972, an opportunity to return to USMA as a permanent associate professor in the Department of Physics surfaced. Within two years, Bob was promoted to professor, with expectations to remain until his 30-year retirement.</p>
<p>
As usual, he was involved with much more than his primary duties, and in addition to serving on the Admissions Committee, he skied, played tennis and earned an MBA at Long Island University. True to his nature, he retired from the Army in 1979 and made a career change, as he wanted to give the industrial world a try.</p>
<p>
Accepting a position with Systems, Science &amp; Software (S-Cubed), Bob returned to California with the family and settled in El Cajon. He worked his way up the corporate ladder and became executive vice president and deputy general manager after a few years. Bob&rsquo;s never-ending quest for challenges led him to his final work endeavor as an entrepreneur.</p>
<p>
In 1994, Bob left S-Cubed, declined an opportunity to serve as the Assistant Under Secretary of Defense but served as a consultant to the Department of Defense and the Department of Energy, and formed Innovatech Incorporated. Bob designed and produced a patented water treatment system using high intensity, pulsed, ultra-violet light to inactivate micro-organisms in drinking water. For his pioneering efforts in that area, Bob was honored with a citation. He worked energetically as President and Chief Executive Officer of Innovatech, until his death in 2000.</p>
<p>
Bob enjoyed an active life and liked to help others. Although never fully retired, Bob and Marvel spent their free time renovating a home in the San Jacinto Mountains. He participated in professional engineering activities and held memberships in professional and technical societies, such as the American Legion and Rotary International.</p>
<p>
His greatest satisfaction during the final years was time spent with his children and four grandchildren. Bob&rsquo;s life on earth ended after a short bout with a highly aggressive form of lung cancer. We know he reached numerous goals and everlasting peace with his Lord and Savior in heaven. He left a legacy that we are very proud of and reflects highly upon himself, his family, and West Point. Well done, thou good and faithful servant.</p>
