Bob encompassed the attributes of the global leader. He resonated with each of us for possibly different reasons and we all benefited by his presence and guidance.

I started my career at Motorola at the Franklin Park campus in the early 1970's. Mr. Galvin would come to our building, the back building, just to walk around and to say hello to his employees. There was never any pomp and circumstance. He would stop you in the hall and say Hi, and ask you how you were doing and if everything was ok. He was an amazing human being who always showed respect and true compassion for all of his employees. Everyone was always treated as part of a big family. I think of Bob often and admire the man he was. My sincere sympathy to the Galvin Family.

Bob was a class act in everything he did or in every gathering he was engaged in. He treated everyone with the greatest amount of dignity imaginable whether in Schaumburg, Malaysia, Austin, China or anywhere Motorola had employees. If had a child and wanted him or her to model themselves after someone, Bob Galvin would be someone you could say, be just like that man. It is an honor to have known him and to have served on committees with him and to have him visit our factories.

There is not much more that can be said about Bob Galvin, that hasn't already been said in the pages of this Guest Book. What is remarkable, however, is that every word is true. He was an inspiration to us all, and I will tell my grandchildren about the truly remarkable man i had the privilege and pleasure to be associated with for a quarter of a century.
