Robert Hohler

Bob Hohler has been a force to be reckoned with in the affordable housing community for over two decades, most recently as the Executive Director for the Melville Charitable Trust. He passed away last week while vacationing with his family.

In addition to his work in housing, Bob was a civil rights activist who marched on Selma, Alabama. He dedicated his life to social justice, and creating opportunity for those denied it.

"At the center of everything we do is the idea of individual empowerment, of helping people to help themselves by getting access to the tools and means to achieve," Holder said in 2004.

He will be missed.
