Dear Galvin family - we fondly remember Mr. Galvin, especially as a good friend of our father's. He was a wonderful family man and friend, and one of the great business leaders Illinois ever had. I remember his halcyon days at YPO. You are in our thoughts.

I met Bob when I worked as a manufacturing operator on the night shift at the Ed Bluestein plant in Austin, Texas. Bob was a visionary, who saw the potenital in the people, as well as where our products could go. Bob was a pioneer who dared to blaze new pathways, rather than follow where everyone else had been. As technology went, he did not believe in keeping up with the Jones, Motorola was the Jones. The wisdom, vision and business intuition have enjoy today was seeded and nurtured by my tenture as an employee with Motorola. Well done our good and faithful servant, now take your rest.

I had the privilege of sitting next to Bob at a few Motorola University Board of Trustees meetings. During one meeting's break, we shared stories of our families' pioneering histories. The meeting re-started, so we couldn't finish our conversation. A couple of days later, I received a note from Bob, sent interoffice, with his story's conclusion. Fortunately, for so many, his story will go on and on. A great man.

Bob Galvin I first met in 1955 when as a high school student I led a Motorola-sponsored Junior Achievement 'company' for 2 years. Upon graduating, I worked full time at Motorola in Chicago, in California and Washington State. He, and his dad before him were visionary leaders from whom many still derive inspiration. The Company paid for 100% of my first degree, and at the time I left were going to send me to Law School. Motorola was truly a 'learning organization' long before the term was coined!
