Robert G. Tabor (Taborsky), 89, died on Jan. 21 in Austin, Texas.

“I honestly can say my father was the most decent man I ever met, and he did not have a condemning or paternalistic bone in his body. He was an egalitarian. My father taught me to be fascinated by nature and experimentation and to wonder. He wanted me to be a scientist but was never pushy about it and accepted my artistic bent 100%. I was not ready to see him go; I was thinking he would live to be 100 years old.”—Laura Tabor-Huerta, daughter
