Robert Louis Folk
On June 4, 2018 the sedimentary geology community lost one of its heroes (www.jsg.utexas.edu/news/2018/06/remembering-bob-folk/). Robert Louis Folk’s international reputation was founded on his classifications for limestones and sandstones but also on an ebullient personality that allowed him to build friendships and collaborations with colleagues all over the world. His entertaining presentation style always drew a happy crowd. He was popularly known as Bob Folk, although at times he would introduce himself as “Luigi”, an Italian version of his middle name.
