On September 2, 2013 Dr. Robert “Bob” Straub, a treasured, fifty year client of UHY LLP, passed away peacefully.

In 1963 a business associate introduced Gordon Follmer, of UHY, to Dr. Robert Straub. They began working together right away. Dr. Straub then made the move with Follmer in 1968, when he started his own accounting firm; Follmer Rudzewicz & Co., the Michigan predecessor of UHY LLP.

Throughout the years, many employees at UHY have worked with Dr. Straub, a number of them forming personal friendships. Dr. Straub made a lasting impression on everyone that worked on his account. “There is so much I could say about Bob Straub. He was a wonderful, giving, sincere, caring and highly skilled man; the best of the best. God bless him,” said Follmer.

It is with heavy hearts that UHY must bid farewell to a great man and one of the firm’s very first clients.
