Robert Neal (Jan 9, 1990 - Dec 10, 2012)

Robert J. Neal III, an information systems and technology major, joined the ODUCS Systems Group in April of 2010. For the next two and a half years he worked closely with many of the faculty and staff on various problems, new solutions, and applications. With his strong background in network engineering and information systems, he was one of the key individuals assisting in the CS Department's recent wireless network upgrade to provide better coverage, faster connection and better quality of service. His love of technology, computer components, and mobile devices led him to assist the Systems Group in research and planning of new systems, tools, and services to offer to the department and students. As a student system administrator for the department he helped oversee the network infrastructure and maintained several facets of the department's Microsoft Windows domain. As one of our brightest tech support personnel, his skills and talents will be a loss to all who had the pleasure of working with him. His upbeat walk, constant smile, eager attitude, and helpful personality will be missed throughout the halls and facilities of the Computer Science Department and the ODU Campus itself. The Systems Group, Computer Science Department, and all who knew him, mourn his loss and our thoughts are with his family and friends during this time. Robert, you will be missed.
