Robert E. Williams Jr., orthodontist and educator was a lifelong participant in and advocate of Scouting.
His love of Scouting, instilled by his mother and uncle, continued through his entire adult life. An Eagle Scout and recipient of the Order of the Arrow and Wood Badge, he served as Assistant Scoutmaster and Scoutmaster of Troop 5 of the Baltimore Area Council in the late 1980s and early 1990s. As Scoutmaster, he led a contingent of Baltimore area scouts on a two-week trip to Japan in 1988, part of the Sister Cities exchange program with Kawasaki, Japan. The trip included a successful summit of Mt. Fuji, and he often quoted the Japanese proverb “A wise man will climb Mt. Fuji...once.” He also volunteered at the district level, and recently played an integral role in the move of Troop 729 to Towson Presbyterian Church.
