On Friday, March 1, 2019, Dr. Robert Ehudin passed away at the age of 80.
Robert was born on October 4, 1938 in Baltimore, Maryland to Bess and Albert Randall. When his parents divorced, he was adopted by his step-father, Albert Ehudin, and took on the Ehudin family name.
He graduated from Baltimore City College (high school) in June of 1956 and went on to study optometry at the Pennsylvania School of Optometry, graduating as a doctor of optometry in June of 1964.
Robert then served in the U.S. Army as an officer in the MSC (Medical Service Corps). His service included 18 months in Vietnam, ending in 1967.
He practiced optometry at the LÉnfant Plaza in Washington, D.C. for close to 30 years.
Robert (known to family and friends as Rob, Bob, or Bobby) was a passionate follower of the horse racing scene and loved to spend time at the track. He was an avid sports fan, but was also fascinated by the history of the Second World War and was enamored by stories of the Americans of the “Greatest Generation”.
To all who knew and loved him he will be remembered and missed for his generosity, his warm and kind spirit and, above all, his wonderful sense of humor.
Robert is survived by his brother, Morton, his nephews, Erik and Jonas, his niece, Mia and nephew, Linus, as well as several cousins of the Randall family.
Following his cremation, he will be interned at a military cemetery in the Washington area.
