Remembering Bob Edge
The local real estate community mourns the death of Cushman & Wakefield Texas vice chairman Bob Edge, who passed away Saturday. Bob handled some of the region’s biggest transactions including the ’79 HQ relo for American Airlines and the ’88 office consolidation for Mobil Oil. Bob was also the '87 Stemmons Service Award winner and a member of the Dallas Real Estate Hall of Fame. He opened the Dallas office of C&W in ’74. The Trocchio Advantage founder and CEO Liz Trocchio Smith, who worked with Bob for a number of years at Cushman, tells us the industry has lost an icon. She says she lost a friend, who was a quiet leader, strong and impactful. She tells us that he had a passion for what he did that was refreshing, and an incredible love for his family. Celebration of life is 2 pm Thursday at Sparkman Hillcrest Chapel.
