Into the Mystic Circle: Rob Stringert ’77
Earlier this month we bid adieu to a Brother who has been welcomed into the Mystic Circle. Among the comments from some of his classmates on Social Media upon receiving the news:
Rob, I will remember and love you forever!
Never forget his endearing smile and genuine friendship. Rocking Rob RIP, Brother.
I am very saddened by Rob's passing. He was part of the best DKE pledge class in my years at Kenyon.
We were so very fortunate to befriend Robert Stringert. He exemplified the finest characteristics of humankind. He occupies a special place in heaven.
John Parsons Jr.
Very well said Mark. In every situation things were always good with Rob. My very good fortune to have known him, so many good memories even after so much time has passed. Very best.
He was one of the co-inventors of Ultimate Frisbee (which we called Competition Frisbee) on the small field between McBride and Gund back in '73.
Whether driving the back roads with a 12 pack of Rock, driving to Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Columbus on a Dead roadtrip in the Swinger, or getting mud all over ourselves, We always had great times. We will all miss you brother! RIP
RIP Rob Stringert. This is how I will always remember you.
