Robert Sielski '64: “I am apparently either in very good health, or else I have an excellent mortician!”

Robert A. Sielski ’64 didn’t see DX as an “Animal House” as many others did, but admits that the chapter certainly did have their moments and had plenty of fun. After several years as a civilian employee of the U.S. Navy in Washington, one marriage, one daughter and five grandchildren later, Bob is still actively involved in running, biking and swimming and, apparently, in very good health!

Robert Fogler ’91: "I’ve learned much more from my failures than my successes."

Brother Robert Fogler ’91’s family certainly has history at UM, with his parents working at the university, his brother also being a member of DX and his sons being die-hard UM fans. It was during his time in the chapter that kegs were banned from the houses, and Bob remembers hundreds of fun times they had “without paying for strangers to drink our beer and vomit in our house.” Though he and his wife lost their entire life’s savings in a failed African sports TV business, they don’t regret the decision for a second, and Bob went on to become a co-owner of a financial services firm and an energy company.

Barry Fasbender ’59: “You never know where life will take you.”

Brother Barry Fasbender ’59 has met many of his best friends through Delta Chi at UM, but one of the best parts, he says, was meeting his wife, Alice. Since graduation, Barry and Alice have moved to Seattle, then to Palo Alto, San Francisco Bay and plan on moving to southern Oregon in the near future. No matter where they’ve moved, however, Barry has kept his one true passion going…his swimming. He continues to swim 3,000-4,000 yards a day and has set many records, only one of which remains.
