For those of us who knew Bob, this is a real loss. Bob was one of the founding PRA Members in 1979. He devoted many hours to helping the PRA grow and improve. He served as the PRA's Executive Director from 1979 until the late 1980s. During that time Bob managed the business operations of the PRA during some very challenging times for the PRA.
