March 29, 2014, at his home surrounded
by his loving family after a long battle with
pancreatic cancer.
Born on Oct. 25, 1934, and raised in
Michigan, the son of Morris and Ida
Mitteldorf, he married his first and only
love, Peggy, in 1961. He served in the
Air Force Reserve in 1959 and moved to
California in 1970.
In his early years, he worked in insur-
ance but found his true calling in the
commercial collection industry, initially
buying into an ongoing agency, Creditors
Adjustment Bureau Inc., and then becom-

replaced his partners in the business with
his family, first his son Brian in 1989 and
then his son-in-law Ken in 1992. Under
Mr. Mittledorf's tutelage and guidance,
they became a force to reckon with in the
industry and worked diligently to expand
the company into one of the most success-
ful collection agencies in California.
Bob's primary passion was to ensure
the happiness and wellbeing of his family.
He was the patriarch and took his respon-
sibilities as such very seriously but with
great joy. He also loved travel and tennis.
He and Peggy have explored the entire
world over and particularly enjoyed luxury
cruises. He became a member of the
Braemar Tennis Club in 1974 and could be
found on the courts playing singles three
days a week even after his cancer diagno-
sis. He was also an avid L.A. Clipper fan
and season ticket holder from the "dark
days." Bob particularly enjoyed fine wine,
granola, Maras biscotti, Dijon mustard
and chicken with ketchup. He could rock
short shorts and matching sweat suits like
nobody's business and had particularly
strong beliefs about wearing dress shoes
with no socks.
Bob has left in his wake an almost
