      Robert "Bob" Brock

      Robert Brock, 87, passed away Monday August 22, 2011 in a local nursing facility following a stroke. Ha lived in Santa Maria from 1967 to 1972 while working at Vandenberg Air Force Base. He then moved to Huntington Beach, CA and returned to Santa Maria in 2005 after his retirement.

      Mr. Brock was born in Meadville, PA on June 2, 1924 to parents Howell and Elizabeth Brock. He served a navigator in the Army Air Corps during WWII and was stationed in the Pacific.

      Bob received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering with honors from Long Beach State University in 1977.

      Bob began working as a tool and die maker at the Talon Zipper Company in Meadville, PA. Following his military service, his love of flight led to a 43-year career in the aerospace industry. His most enjoyable assignment was working for the McDonnell Douglas Space Launch Team at VAFB, and he was also proud of his design contributions to the Northrop B2 Stealth Bomber and the Boeing 767 commercial airliner. He retired in 1998 from Parker-Hannifin.

      An automotive enthusiast, Bob also enjoyed dance performances, especially ballet, as well as classical music. He was particularly fond of organ music and served on the volunteer team which assisted with the installation of the Forbes Pipe Organ at the Cal Poly Performing Arts Center in San Luis Obispo, CA.

      Bob was preceded in death by his wife of 49 years, Betty Brock. He is survived by his daughter Deborah Shriver, his son John Brock and grandsons Alex and Tyler Brock.

      Private graveside services were conducted at the Santa Marie Cemetery. Memorial donations may be made to Marian Medical Center's Cornerstone Building Fund, 805-739-3595.
