Robert Klein Engler, of Chicago and Omaha, passed away Oct. 3 in Omaha. He was 75.

Robert was a well-known and brilliant writer, leaving thousands of poems, innumerable plays and books of short stories, and countless essays. He won two awards from the Illinois Arts Council for his poetry. He was also an artist who painted dozens of canvases which were widely displayed.

Robert held degrees from The University of Illinois-Urbana, and the University of Chicago Divinity School. He was a professor at Daley College and Roosevelt University.

He belonged to various writing groups, including Tall Grass, and served for years as president of Newtown Writers. He founded several performance venues where actors performed the works of the group's authors. He help found the group's press and served at times as the editor of the group's literary anthology.
