Robert D. “Bob” McNeil, one of the Barn’s earliest and most loyal advisors and supporters, passed on April 13 after a decade long bout with cancer. Our Barn family will sorely miss his strong commitment to our mission and his attention to every detail of our organization’s work. Bob’s dedication to the Barn began as one of our founder’s initial sounding boards and trusted mentors and his commitment was so strong that he continued his support in the final weeks of his life. Bob’s wife, Jennifer, and his children always matched his support and enthusiasm for the Barn, volunteering in multiple capacities to further our mission and contributing to our growth.

We will miss Bob, but his spirit will endure through his example, and also through his very special family.
