Broken Wand - Robert "Bob" Steiner (USA)

Message forwarded on by George Schindler

We're sad to report news has just reached us that Robert "Bob" Steiner, P.N.P., passed away early this morning (Jan. 4, 2013) in California's Bay Area.

Bob was passionate about his service to the S.A.M. over the years, and was a fixture at Council meetings and Conventions. With a background as a CPA and a member of MENSA, he had a keen, finely-tuned mind, and could be counted upon to notice details at the that others might not see. He was always up for a challenge, whether running for Congress in New Jersey, tackling mind-bending conundrums, serving with the likes of James Randi to debunk faith-healing charlatans, or just enjoying the perfection of a new magic effect. He authored a book "Don't Get Taken" to expose con games, and toured the world exposing those who used magic principles for supernatural claims.

Our deepest thanks to Bay Area magicians, and particularly Lance Snead and the Compeers of Assembly 112 for providing care for Bob as he faced incredible physical challenges in his life over the past few years.

Rev. Michael Douglass, P.N.P.
National Chaplain
