Obituary

Robert E. Wengert, PhD, 90, of Syracuse, passed away Tuesday, April 16, 2019 surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Las Vegas on September 25, 1928, he was the son of Cyril and Lottie Wengert. He was Captain of the Las Vegas Wild Cats Football Team, who were known as the “Dream Team” of 1944 and were the undefeated state champions.

He was a graduate of UNLV at Reno, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and received his doctorate from Syracuse University.

During Robert’s 38 years at General Electric, as an engineer and manager, he worked on a variety of projects ranging from the Atlas Space Program to the Over-The-Horizon Radar System.

Robert met the love of his life, Patricia Hickey, on a blind date and spent the next 60 plus years as a devoted, grateful, and loving husband.

His family was his primary focus, raising his 6 children to embrace life, always do their best, and love God.
