Many of you probably know that Bob Sheaves, AMC and Chrysler engineer emeritus and long-time industry consultant, who has trained many a civilian to think like an automotive insider, has had a severe stroke. It hurt his ability to type and use phones, and was followed a few weeks later by another incident.
He has been released from hospice care and is now at home. I know many people will rejoice at this news. Quite aside from his skill and expertise, he’s just a good guy who has quietly helped many people, behind the scenes. Professionally, he’s rescued projects and moved the state of the art ahead; but I generally know him as 80% educator and 20% curmudgeon.
And now, I owe someone a call.
