West Virginia University President Jim Clements today (Aug. 17) issued the following statement on the death of Robert McNabb, a member of the University’s Academy of Distinguished Alumni who died Thursday. McNabb was also a member of the board of directors of the WVU Foundation. Services are scheduled for Aug. 26, at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston, TX:

“Bob McNabb was not only a highly successful business executive, but one of the most loyal and passionate Mountaineers I have had the honor of knowing. His love for WVU was inspirational – from his stories of his undergraduate years here to his service on the WVU Foundation Board and other University committees. We will miss him, and send our sincerest condolences to his wonderful family.”
