Bob Hider SEABROOK ISLAND, SC - Bob Hider was larger than life. He was a man who was not limited by social norms. He lived life to the fullest on his own terms. He was funny, generous, kind, and warm; at the same time, he was disarming and irreverent although almost always with a smile. Many who knew him compared him to a big teddy bear. He had no time for people who put on airs. If you were not genuine, you were probably not his friend. Bob was also a man of many talents. He was a musician, a photographer, a carpenter, and a showman. He was at ease with technology as an IBM systems engineer and, later, on his own as a video producer/director. He played a good game of tennis and a not-so-good game of golf. His father-in-law introduced him to birding which he grew to love, especially after moving to Seabrook Island from Northern Virginia. Those capabilities weren't apparent in his younger years at Glen Ridge High School (NJ). He spent six years there, attending 10th grade three times. Once he got to Westminster Choir College, however, he finally found his niche. His wife of 53 years, Marcia, his son, Sandy (Mica), his daughter, Jill (Jerry), and his two grandsons, Andrew and Alex all loved him dearly. We are planning a celebration in his honor in mid-May, 2021. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to the Charleston Symphony Orchestra or a charity of your choice
