Congressman Adam Smith released the following statement recognizing the life of Bob Dickerson:

“I was deeply saddened to learn that Bob Dickerson passed away.  Bob was eternally optimistic and inspired everyone that he met, including me. He recognized the good in humanity; and the generosity, selflessness, and passion that he exhibited every day uplifted everyone around him.  He never missed the chance to put in a good word about others and recognize the work of his colleagues and friends.  He spent his life fighting tirelessly for the poor and vulnerable at home and around the world.  Bob will be tremendously missed, but the impact he had on the people who knew him will continue to live on.  My thoughts and prayers are with Bob’s family and friends at this difficult time.”
