Earl Robert Unger (Bob) April 12, 1930.
Arlene Byron Clungeon

Bob shared many memories with the kids from 103, especially summer vacations at Aunt Carrie and Uncle Norman’s with Betty. He “idolized” Grandpa Unger.

Earl Robert Unger graduated from Pottsville High School in 1948, (and danced in a Pottsville HS music festival!). He was president of the a’capalla choir, (and still sings bass in the church choir). He attended Princeton for a year, majoring in geology, but really excelling in football, where he was a star quarterback. Mom remembers going to Princeton to see him play. One of his substitutes on the team went on to win the Heisman Trophy (Dick Casmire); Donald Rumsfeld lived across the hall. Lou Rucheiser (Wall Street Week) was a classmate. He served in the Navy in 1950, returning for another try at Princeton after a year. Bob played professional baseball for a time, pitching with the Athletics in Savannah (and once striking out Hank Aaron). The As was a farm team for the Philadelphia Athletics, now the Oakland As. He played professional football with the Eagles for four pre-season games against the Steelers, Packers, Bears and Lions, but couldn’t get insured. (At that time, football players made about $6-7,000 a season!) For a year he sold Brunswick bowling alleys, bowling balls and pool tables.

He met Arlene Byron Clungeon at Temple. She went on to teach history at Haverford High School; they were married on June 18, 1955 at Oxford Presbyterian, in Philadelphia. They had four children:
Robert Calvin (Chip), born on July 20, 1957
Richard Byron was born on September 16, 1958. We remember Dick for his enthusiasm for fishing; he’s currently enjoying working the deli at Giant. His wife Linda works for Boscovs. They have one daughter, Amanda, who plays flute and violin.
Amy Christie was born on April 1, 1961. She was married Aug 31, 1985 to Clifford Lee Morton at Pennside Presbyterian; they had two daughters, Sarah Christie Morton, born September 16, 1989 And Lauren?? Amy was an acclaimed teacher, but is currently in an important job as the Curriculum Supervisor for the Gettysburg School district. Amy graduated from Dickinson College. She was a good basketball and field hockey player. She and Arlene did a kayak trip down the Delaware in the early 70s. Amy’s daughters are both honor roll students and play string instruments.
Andrew Kenneth was born on October 31, 1968. Andy is an outdoor guy, but also does lab work.
Arlene owned and operated a wonderful restaurant in Reading in the early 1980s, Window Finney’s. She put in very long hours, and the food and atmosphere were great, but the location wasn’t very good, and it finally closed.
