Bob grew up in suburban New York in the town of Eastchester. The middle child, Bob has been lucky to stay close with his siblings, especially his younger sister. After growing up in New York, Bob attended Georgetown University in Washington D.C. and served on the school’s Student Council with Bill Clinton! Upon graduation, Bob moved to Tucson to attend law school at the U of A and fell in love with the desert and stayed. After law school, Bob worked for his law firm for 43 years practicing real estate and business law.

Now, Bob enjoys his time playing and improving his golf game, riding and taking care of his 4 horses, and traveling to Nashville every June for Country Music Fan Fair with his wife… all while continuing to consult with his firm on the side. Bob did the legal work for Youth On Their Own when the agency decided to acquire the building next door (now the Youth On Their Own Home Store) has stayed with the organization ever since. Over the years, Bob has made many great memories with our organization but particularly remembers attending the annual Fall Wine Tasting where he met YOTO’s former CEO, Teresa Baker, and former Board President, Bryan Foulk. According to Bob, their passion for helping homeless youth was contagious! YOTO is a “great organization with great people doing very necessary work for our community,” says Bob.

While Bob has a long history of supporting local charities and organizations including six years on the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Clubs and many years supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters, he has chosen to stay with YOTO because of the people he meets and the incredible cause YOTO supports.
