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.

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
