More detail on this person: Robert L. Carman Robert L. Carman, 57, of Kutztown, died on Thursday, January 25, 2007 in the Inpatient Hospice Unit at Lehigh Valley Hospital, 17th and Chew streets, Allentown. He was the husband of Kathleen M. (Adams) Carman. Born in Freeport, N.Y., he was the son of Mortimer S. and Mary Elizabeth (Lewis) Carman. He graduated from high school in Wilton, Conn. in 1967 and received aviation training from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, Fla. He also attended Northrop Institute of Technology, Inglewood, Calif. and Army flight schools in Texas and Alabama. He was a helicopter pilot, an aircraft commander and chief warrant officer in the Army. A Vietnam veteran, Bob was twice presented with a distinguished Flying Cross, a Bronze Star and 25 air medals. Robert was an E.M.S. MedEvac Helicopter pilot for Keystone Helicopters for 27 years, the last 25 of which were at Lehigh Valley Hospital. Survivors: Wife; parents; daughter, Danielle Carman; son, Matthew Carman; sisters, Susan Tregalles and Betty Ann Copley; grandchildren, Logan B. Bachman and Piper Carman.

Bob" Carman: MedEvac pilot will be missed by many On Jan. 25, Robert "Capt. Bob" Carman lost a battle and his life, but not the war. Bob Carman was senior pilot for University MedEvac, a member of the Lehigh Valley Hospital family and team winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award presented by the Regional Eastern Pa. Medical Council. He will be forever remembered for his tenacity, commitment, and dedication to the preservation of human life. Bob has impacted trauma patients and their entire families for many years, yet few would ever know his name or get the opportunity to say "thank you." Capt. Bob's exploits in the air (and on the ground) continue to be a topic at EMS meetings and banquets. I ask that every patient ever flown by a LVH aircraft and their families to say a prayer for Bob Carman, and give thanks for him. I am honored and privileged to have known Bob and to call him "friend." James A. Frey

Burial information: Cremated. Ashes given to family or friends.
