I received the news about Bob this morning at 6am. Bob was my first true "mentor" at KPMG in the mid to late 1980s. I am saddened to hear of his loss and will think of him often, especially when I'm rooting for "our" SMU Mustangs. Fondly, Julie Reeves

Bob has worked for me for many years, and there are no words to describe just how much he will be missed. He was both a colleague and a friend, and he will forever be remembered for his contributions, skills and grace. I wish only the fondest of memories for Bob's family and friends. You were blessed to have him.
