Phantom Regiment Mourns Loss Of Former Director

| |

The Phantom Regiment Organization is mourning the death of Bob Lendman, who served as both Regiment Cadet Director (1973-1974) and Regiment Director (assistant in 1975, director in 1976-1981). Bob passed away on Saturday, March 19 during a battle to recover from multiple injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident in Florida a few weeks ago.

Fondly remembered for his ability to connect with people, Bob had a knack for solving problems and taking control of situations. He just knew how to get things done. Bob had a way of talking to strangers and made them feel that they had been friends for a long time. If you didn’t know anything about drum corps or the Phantom Regiment, he would take time to tell you all the things you needed to know. Most of the members who marched with the corps in the late 1970’s can recall the first time they met Bob Lendman. There just wasn’t anyone quite like him and everyone who knew him had a “Bob story” to tell.
