the VOB forum, Kevin Murphy
(VOB 1957-1968) advises that “...Mr.
Bob Baldwin passed away a few days ago. His
long career with Gulf
Oil included many years in Venezuela
with MGO in various
locations and positions, as one of the jefes
there and later as an executive in Pittsburgh.
While my family crossed paths with them many
times, the most was in Lagunillas in the early
1960s. He was one of the most humorous people
I ever met.
