“We are saddened to learn that industry pioneer Robert Galvin has died. Before terms such as innovator and visionary became popular, Bob innovated and had a pioneering vision that helped shape and define the mobile telecommunications technology that we all take for granted today. We are all fortunate that his contributions and devotion to the information and communications technology industry leave a lasting legacy and a foundation upon which we can continue to build.
