In loving memory of Bob Blankenship
The McConnell Foundation board and staff are saddened by the loss of Bob Blankenship, board member and dear friend. He served on the Foundation’s board since 2002, until his passing on October 22, 2020.
Bob is remembered by his colleagues for being sensitive and curious, as well as for his advocacy for education and youth. He brought to The McConnell Foundation an innate sense of community, and an unwavering commitment to service, a strong focus on training and an expectation for excellence. We appreciated his very special people skills and his ability to make difficult group conversations easier.
Bob loved his family, people, animals, nature and his community. He was a special board member and man, and we will miss his sense of humor, his warm heart and his friendship.
