It is with great sadness that ARIN informs the community of the death of 
Robert Stratton, ARIN's Chief Financial Officer. Bob passed on Monday, 
29 April 2013, after a courageous battle with cancer. He was 55 years 

Bob joined ARIN in March of 1998 when ARIN was only 20 employees. ARIN 
President and CEO John Curran said, "Bob was a key contributor to the 
success of ARIN through his dedication and tireless efforts. Bob's 
financial acumen and intellect were a rare combination indeed, and his 
enduring smile lifted the spirits of everyone who had the pleasure of 
working with him."

We will all miss Bob's inquisitive mind, compassion, sense of humor and 
sharing of Civil War history and financial articles. We have lost a 
dearly beloved ARIN family member and friend.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Bob's family; wife Deborah and 
daughter Julianne, of whom Bob was immensely proud. Expressions of 
sympathy may be sent to info at arin.net, and we will forward them on to 
Bob's family. Those interested in memorial contributions can request 
information through the same address.
