I am so sad to hear about the passing of Bob Philcox. What a man he was! Honest, hardworking and a wonderful friend to my family. Bob did so much for the City of Pleasanton. They don't make men like Bob anymore. Our heartfelt blessings go out to Orley, Bobby and Nancy always.

I met Bob in 1982 at a banking event. Later I was fortunate to assist him with various technology issues. When we were discussing the community, I could tell he was genuinely concerned about how Pleasanton was at a turning point from a small community to a thriving city. His thoughts on how the City of Planned Progress could move forward were right on target after looking at where we are today. Bob will be missed.
