Click Here to read a Tribute to Professor Robert (Bob) Morris, my friend, a mentor to many, and a kind, tireless, and brilliant teacher and humanitarian.  He inspired us, made us laugh, gave us pause to reflect, and he helped people and hospitals around the world to his last breath...

Bob Morris' Dad was a migrant farmer, and Bob lived in 20 cities before he even reached High School!  As you will read in the above Tribute, Bob didn't even have indoor plumbing until he went into the ARMY!!  Bob was physicist who became a talented Clinical Engineer by natural curiosity and lots of hard work.

Obituary of Dr. Manuel H Sloane, my father.

My Dad, Manny Sloane, had a life well-lived that was dedicated to healthcare, science, country, and family. He demonstrated lifelong tenacity, curiosity, and compassion that I, too, strive to attain.  Life did not always treat him fairly, but  nonetheless he did his best to maintain a steady sense of dignity, self respect, and humility throughout his life.

Manny Sloane was loved, respected, trusted, and admired by many.

May he rest in peace.
