We are deeply saddened to pass along the news that our dear friend and
coworker, Robert Naftzger, passed away after suffering from a
stroke days earlier.
Having been with the Studio since 1997, many of us had the pleasure of
working with Robert though the years. He was a talented and hard-working
craftsman with a strong work ethic and a kind and gentle demeanor.
Robert was in the final phases of his recovery from his terrible motorcycle
accident last year and was scheduled to begin supervising crews again in
Robert's hundreds of projects with CSS included, The Cathedral of the
Immaculate Conception, Springfield, Illinois; Cathedral of St. John the
Baptist, Savannah, Georgia; Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist,
Milwaukee, Wisconsin; The Quad F Theatre, Schofield Barracks, Honolulu;
Holy Family Catholic Church, Columbus, Georgia; The Julie Rogers Theatre, Beaumont, Texas; the Gillioz Theatre in Springfield, Missouri, for which he was named Missouri
Craftsman of the Year, and countless others.
Robert will be truly missed.
