I can’t possibly be more eloquent than Melissa Turrentine was, but I do 
have a few words about Bob Hatcher's passing.
The Tennessee Ornithological Society can’t thank Bob enough for all he did 
for avian wildlife in Tennessee. He joined TOS in 1979 and he always had a 
passion for conserving all forms of wildlife and it’s habitats. He always 
to me to be a mover and a shaker, without really seeming so because he was 
always so pleasant and firm in his beliefs. Many others have listed Bob’s 
accomplishments over the years, and they were many and important. What really 
impressed me about Bob was his ability to get stuff done without having to 
resort to heavy-handedness, anger, arm-twisting (although he might have 
this technique, you never knew it with him!), or berating people. That just 
wasn’t Bob. He just worked with what he had and kept moving forward, 
persistently and doggedly, until the result was achieved. A lesson most of us 
could benefit from.
His life was a life well lived. He laughed often, lived well as a father, 
husband, and employee, and loved much. It just doesn’t get any better than 
Somehow, I get the feeling that he is out there, somewhere, soaring.
God speed, Bob.
