In Memory of Mr. Robert “Bob” McFarland, CPPM, CF

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of Bob McFarland’s passing on May 18, 2017. Bob McFarland was a CPPM, CF and a founding member of the NPMA. He was the consummate Property Professional! Bob presented at nearly every NES, and numerous Regional Seminars. Bob held numerous chapter leadership positions in numerous chapters as his work took him to different geographic areas. And an interesting note of Bob’s forward vision – As President of the San Diego Chapter in 1985 he started the first NPMA Chapter training program which became the model for National NPMA Training programs for a goodly number of years after that. Bob contributed mightily to the NPMA literature base – writing numerous Award winning articles in The Property Professional – as well as expanding the NPMA literature by his writing for the NPMA Journal of Property and Asset Management. Bob was also a past recipient of the NPMA Property Person of the Year Award and the NPMA Lifetime Achievement Award.

Bob is survived by the wife, Pam McFarland, CPPM, CF also an NPMA member and true Property Professional. Our sympathies go out to Pam at this very difficult time. Though the final internment details have not been finalized, letters of condolence can be sent to Pam at: 3359 Caterina Dr. | New Smyrna Beach, FL 32168
