Robert (Bob) Cool - 1943-2017: The field of arboriculture loses dedicated leader and mentor
Robert A. Cool was recognized throughout the State of Michigan and nationally for his expertise. A State Registered Forester and a post-graduate of Michigan State University, Bob worked for the City of Lansing's Parks and Recreation Department for 23 years, as Forester and as Manager of Field services, overseeing the city's trees and green areas. To remain current with the changing information in the field, Bob maintained countless memberships in many national and international forestry and arboriculture associations. He served on many professional boards and committees, and served as MFPA's Secretary/Treasurer for many decades.
Bob died suddenly on July 22, 2017. He will be missed not only by his family and friends, but also by his many colleagues and acquaintances in the industry.
