03-24-2016

Berlin, Md. – The Atlantic General Hospital Foundation is honored to share in recognizing the generous commitment and loyal service of the late Robert E. Warfield, Sr. through the establishment of the Robert E. Warfield Memorial Fall Golf Classic to benefit Atlantic General Hospital (AGH). The tournament, formerly known as the AGH Annual Fall Golf Classic, will celebrate twenty-three years on Thursday, September 22, 2016 at the Ocean City Golf Club.

An alumnus of Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, MD and Western Maryland College (McDaniel College) in Westminster, “Bob” dedicated his busy life to giving to others in service and in spirit. A veteran of the United States Army, Bob served as a second lieutenant in the Army’s 29th Division in Korea before moving to Ocean City and co-founding Moore, Warfield & Glick Realtors.

A Trustee at McDaniel College, Bob and his beloved wife of 47 years, Margaret “Peggy” Warfield, endowed an undergraduate scholarship for students from Worcester County who major in economics or business. An avid sportsman, Bob also donated a set of tennis courts on the campus and has been an integral member of the AGH Fall Golf Classic Committee since he joined the Foundation’s Board of Directors in 1999. A founding member of the hospital’s Board of Trustees, former Chairman of the Board of Directors for the AGH Foundation, he was also a member and served on the board of directors for the Ocean City Golf and Yacht Club and on the board of directors for the Maryland Economic Development Corporation and Chesapeake Bay Restoration Fund.

A great family man, Bob loved life to the fullest and never passed on the opportunity to help out someone in need. Renowned on the local links, his magnetic personality and community involvement allowed him to touch the lives of many people. Although his generous being will infinitely be missed by all, his legacy will persevere.
