Obituary of Robert Mitchell Werner
He was 81. Capt. Werner was born and raised in Omaha, Neb., and was a 1963 graduate of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, where he was a member of the Naval ROTC. Trained as an electrical engineer, he had early assignments as an electrical officer and as chief engineer on destroyers.
In 1971, Capt. Werner received a master’s degree in computer systems management from George Washington University. He returned to sea duty that year as operations officer aboard the USS Leahy.
He was a real lifesaver donating over 17 gallons of blood. He also enjoyed working on his two Model-A Fords and helping his daughter with her ’57 Chevy.
