On behalf of the memory of Karen Drozdalski, I am saddened to have recently learned of "Doc" Ulrich passing. Please accept our families condolences and our regret that we were unable to attend the service. Karen worked with Doc at Stevenson for over 20 years and always respected their relationship. Our hearts are with you.

Working with Doc throughout the 80's was a wonderful time for our school. Doc was so proud of his staff and students, and especially proud of their many accomplishments. Under Doc's leadership we were hosting major political candidates, winning championships, and sending well prepared students into the world. On a personal level, he helped me become a better writer by red-inking everything I brought to him. Doc was a good boss who surrounded himself with good people, and let them do their job. I was so sad to learn of Doc's passing...Halloween will never be the same.

Farewell my fine friend! Doc you were the best Principal a student could have had. Lots of fun school memories in my high school years in the turbulent 70's. You helped a bunch of struggling teenagers be prepared to face life outside of Stevenson High. Thank you for all you did for all the students who passed through the halls of our fine school. I will treasure my time spent there and will treasure all the laughs we had. You

My dad and Bob grew up like brothers so we became close with his family while I was growing up. As the years passed we lost some of that contact. But the wonderful memories will always remain. I was saddened to hear of his passing and pray God comforts and surrounds the family with HIs love at this time of sorrow and grief. I know how much he will be missed. Revisit those memories of joy and happiness often to keep his presence alive in your lives.

Jeanne, please accept my sympathy for the loss of your beloved, Bob. I dearly recall our last luncheon meeting at the Gandy Dancer.

I was a Custodian for 20 years at Stevenson and Doc was the first principal I worked for. Even though I did not know Doc very well I do know that he was highly respected and had many friends in his students and staff. I am sure that he will be truly missed by his family and friends but he will live forever in your hearts..

My sympathies to Doc Ulrich's family on their loss. I graduated from Sterling Heights Stevenson in June, 1971. It was always apparent that Doc Ulrich truly cared about the students at Stevenson. He was a true leader of our school! Rest in peace, Doc!
