Bob was a caring, insightful, inspiring, person. He invited you to be "better".

Bob will always be remembered by me as a brilliant practitioner of industrial/organization psychology. When I was a graduate student and emerging professional he took me under his wing and invited me to shadow him on several of his high-end corporate assignments. He took a risk that few other established professionals would take at that time in that I was a woman of color - we were referred to as "numerically rare" corporate consultants back then.
I have had a great career and still in the trade and will dearly miss "dr bob lee".
My sincere sympathies to Bob wonderful wife and all of his great children and grands.

I sent Bob an email just today as usual asking a question. His gracious assistant replied with this sad sad news. I met Bob in 1978 through my work and he remained a friend all these decades. I send Mary and their wonderful family my deepest condolences from far away.

Bob was one of a kind. He truly exemplified what it means to live a life of purpose. Bob was my mentor, teacher, and friend. I know that he was that to countless others. He has left an imprint on this world that will be felt for decades to come. Bob, I adore you, loved you dearly, you will be so sorely missed and my heart is broken. My deepest sympathies to his dear wife Mary, family and his closest colleagues at iCoachNY.

Bob was a kind, smart, dedicated, and giving person who touched people in a way that made us feel special. He was a wealth of knowledge but was always hungry to learn more and share what he learned. As a colleague I was honored to call him my friend. He left a legacy that changed how leaders lead and become better leaders. He changed me and multitudes of others so he lives on each of us. I will miss each time I saw or talked with him.
