He will be greatly missed, and we are truly grateful for everything he did for us over the past 10 years as our leader. Our deepest condolences go out to Bob’s family and friends during this difficult time.

Both the Board of Directors and the TCU Place team express their deepest condolences to Bob’s family, including wife Dawn and their children, Michael and Sophie.” – Bryn Richards, Chair, TCU Place Board of Directors
