Not sure what to say?

Bob is truly one of the giants of planning in Alabama; a true gentleman, who continued to contribute in so many ways. Bob's obituary was a beautiful way to share with all of us his wonderful contributions. Bob you are missed but will never be forgotten.

I was extremely sad to learn of Dr. Bob Juster's death. It was my privilige to work with Bob while employed at the Birmingham Regional Planning Commission andh he was my faculty adviser for my thesis for my Masters Degree at UAB in 1978 and a close friend. He will be missed.

I just learned of the death of Dr. Robert Juster and it was a shock to me. I wish to take this opportunity to express my sincere condolences to family members. I came to Alabama from Delaware having being appointed by the Mayor of Birmingham and other members of the Executive Committee to the position of Executive Director of the Birmingham Regional Planning Commission, where Dr. Juster had previously served as Executive Director. It was during this period that I became acquainted with Dr....

I was very sad to hear of Dr. Juster's passing. Although I did not know him on a personal basis, I used his services for clients through the Lee County Volunteer Mediator program. He had a refreshing attitude and was always positive that any dispute could have a reasonable resolution. His wit and wisdom combined to assist the attorneys in guiding their clients to a realization that stressful situations could be handled with minimal animosity to their benefit. He will be truly missed.

There are many families and individuals who have better lives because Bob helped mediate their disputes here in Lee County.

Karen - I am so glad I had the opportunity to know and work with Dr. Juster. He was full of life and knowledge. He was such an asset to the City of Auburn. I am thankful I had the opportunity to learn from him.

May you be comforted during your loss.

My Dear friend Karen and Family,
Know that my heart goes out to you during your loss of a
wonderful person walking with you in life. May you be comforted with the peace that God can only give.
With love and care,
Mary Griessman
