"A friend said of him that he appreciated most in life good food, fast automobiles, boats, and beautiful women.
survived by his widow, Margaret Fristoe Beckwith.
He "admitted years later to an interviewer, 'I'm a spoiled brat.' ["Lincoln's Last Descendant Dies," Madison (Wisconsin) Courier, December 26, 1985, clipping in Louis A. Warren Lincoln Library and Museum) Born on July 19, 1904, near Chicago, Bob was an indifferent student, passing through two unremarkable years at his grandfather Robert's alma mater, Phillips Exeter, before drifting in and out of a prep school in Washington, D.C., and a military academy somewhere in New York. He did not attend college but is said to have received a degree from the National University Law School, although he would later list his profession not as attorney but as 'gentleman farmer of independent means.' During WW II he served in the coast guard, a stint that gave him a lasting interest in boating.
"Bob managed to avoid publicity most of his life; when he failed, the results occasionally proved embarrassing. Newspapers of 1925, for example, were filled with smiling pictures of the young man after his arrest for speeding in Omaha. He said little to the press, save that his hobby was boats. Later he added fast cars and women to his list of interests.
"Judging from his love life, he did not exaggerate. His first marriage, which lasted 30 years, was to an older widow whose son was only ten years younger than his new stepfather.
