Nov. 15, 2012 – Robert “Bob” C. Weih Jr. (’91 Ph.D. in forest biometrics) passed away on June 17, 2012, at the age of 57. He was a professor in the School of Forest Resources at the University of Arkansas at Monticello, where he served for 18 years as director of the Spatial Information Systems Program.

Weih focused his research on the application and development of geospatial models and methods for natural resources and environmental phenomena. “Even now, I use his dissertation results in my graduate GIS class to show students that there is more to understanding a GIS algorithm than simply running a program or procedure,” said Associate Professor Stephen Prisley, who was Weih’s classmate at Virginia Tech. “He will be sorely missed by those who knew him.”

“He taught thousands of students, and I am sure he touched their hearts and minds because he really cared about their learning experience,” said James L. Smith (’81 Ph.D. in forestry), Weih’s advisor at Virginia Tech. Weih is survived by his wife Marilyn, sons Robert and Jeremy, and daughter Melissa.
