Robert Ponce

July 29, 1960 – November 19, 1996

Gone way too soon, but, oh what a life he had! Robert enjoyed his years at Crawford so much and made life long friends, but one friend in particular. Beth Bond Sczempka changed his life forever by inviting him to join her for auditions at Disneyland the summer after graduation. He told our parents he’d be gone for three months, but it ended up giving him opportunities of a lifetime to help create the “magic” of Disney. He started as a Red Toy Soldier in the Christmas Parade, then graduated to traveling the world promoting Disney. He ended up as a senior show director, whose pride and joy was developing “The Lion King Celebration” which helped Disney break attendance records during its run from 1994 to 1996. We miss our brother so very much! -- Mary Ponce Howell ‘72, Bridget Ponce Younger ‘73 and Joyce Ponce Rottenberg '76
