Miller Canfield Mourns the Loss of Friend and Colleague, Robert Lennon

May 7, 2010

Miller Canfield mourns the tragic loss of our good friend and beloved colleague, Bob Lennon, on May 6, 2010, after a six-year fight against pancreatic cancer. He will be missed both professionally and personally. Our deepest condolences to his wife Kay, children, including our colleague Pat, grandchildren, and their families and friends.

"Bob told me that he had been greatly blessed to be born in a place and time where anything was possible--where hard work, energy and discipline could earn great rewards and where his humble roots would not hold him back," said Ron Baylor, a principal and resident director of Miller Canfield's Kalamazoo office. "This positive attitude was reflected in the way he lived his life and practiced law, even while he battled cancer. Bob was a fine real estate and business lawyer and had a remarkably productive career. The landscape of West Michigan (and elsewhere) is sprinkled with projects that include his fingerprints. He will be greatly missed."

Visitation will be on Wednesday, May 12, 2010 at 4:00-8:00 PM ET.
