We learned from Jerrold Eichner that Robert Schore passed away at age 72 on April 15, 2016. He was living in Gig Harbor, WA. The cause of Death was Cardiac Arrest.
Robert is Survived By his wife DJ Zentner, his daughter Tosha Schore and three grandsons. He is also survived by two brothers, Sheldon Schore and Donald Schore.
Bob was a kind and generous man, who had the strength of his convictions. He was always true to his word and worked hard to help those who came to him in his practice of homeopathy and alternative medicine. He was a Conscientious Objector during the Viet Nam era but has worked for the VA in recent years to help evaluate the needs of our veterans. He is greatly missed by his many friends and his family.

So very sad to hear of Robert Schores demise. I remember how kind he was.
The Schores lived on Greenlawn and made sure to throw snowballs at us as we walked home in the winter. Robert was a noble individual who sought to benefit mankind. He had a kind soul.
Bob was my next door neighbor on Greenlawn and my roommate at U of M. He lead our Mumford Marching Bank as the Drum Major. We toured the US in his grandfather's '53 Chevy for our parents would not allow us to buy a used hearse to do it in and to sleep in. Throughout our college days we both drove used Harley 3-wheelers to get around on. In later years, we both upgraded to BMW cycles for our riding pleasures. Despite Bob being in great physical condition and eating properly for 30+ years, and having a whacky sense of humor, his heart did him in unexpectantly. Fortunately, he did not suffer for more than a minute. He will be greatly missed by many and thought after often. We miss you Bob.
My wife and I were enjoying lunch with Sandy Friedman in Honolulu when I asked about Bobby. It was a shcok to learn of his passing. Bobby and I shared lots of adolescent adventures. When he and DJ visited in 2014 we easily fell back into that easy, carefree, fun loving mode. I pulled out my dust covered toy cannon so that we could fire it off. I bought the cannon years ago only because Bobby had one on Greenlawn that provided hours of excitement for both of us. At our last visit we tinkered with that rusty spider infested toy cannon for about an hour until we got the flint to ignite the powder and BOOM the sound thundered, flames flew from the barrel and we were back in 1958. Another fond memory.
Now I am the last of the Nairobi Trio, but Bobby was and always will be the leader.
So sorry to hear of Bob's passing. We shared a lot of great memories as band mates at Mumford. I believe our playing was better than our marching.
