Please Remember Student Robert Bloom in Your Prayers

Please remember Robert "Bobby" Bloom, a member of the St. Thomas class of 2018, in your prayers. He died in a car accident on Aug. 30.

Bloom studied supply chain and operations management at St. Thomas after graduating from White Bear Lake High School. He was also president of the St. Thomas fishing club.

"Bobby was loved beyond words," Bloom's family said. "His faith in God and love for family and friends will be our guide during this difficult time."

"Bobby was a good kid. He was a pleasure to have in class," said Peter Southerd, associate professor of operations and supply management, who had Bloom in class. "Just a nice, pleasant, hardworking individual."

Visitations were Wednesday, Sept. 6, 4-8 p.m., and Thursday, Sept. 7, 10:30-11:30 a.m., at St. Mary of the Lake Catholic Church in White Bear Lake. A memorial service was at 11:30 a.m. on Sept. 7 at the same location.
