Feb. 23, 1920—Oct. 1, 2013

Robert James Bolt passed away quietly on Oct. 1, 2013 at age 93. Bob was born on Feb. 23, 1920 in Grand Rapids, Mich., the youngest of eight children.

He was a graduate of Calvin College and the University of Michigan Medical School. In 1945 he married Phyllis Mae VanDenBerg, also from Grand Rapids. Bob served in the US Naval Reserve Medical Corps from 1946 to 48 then returned to the University of Michigan as a professor of Internal Medicine.

In 1966 Bob, Phyllis and their four children moved to Davis  for the challenge of opening a new medical school, where Bob became the founding chair of the Department of Internal Medicine at UC Davis. During his long career at UCD Bob received many honors, lectured worldwide and published almost 100 articles and books. He retired in 1997.

Bob’s life was full and complete, filled with humor and love of family; he is survived by his four children, six grandchildren and spouses.

A memorial gathering will begin at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20, at University Retirement Community, 1515 Shasta Drive in Davis. All friends are welcome.

Donations honoring his memory may be mailed to Easter Seals Superior California, 3205 Hurley Way, Sacramento, CA 95864, or online at www.myeasterseals.org. Click the “Special Notes to Easter Seals” box to indicate your donation is in honor of Robert Bolt.
