A Tribute to Robert L. Myers from the City Council of Chicago
February 22, 2017
In 1984, Bob became a journeyman with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Trade School. He began a career with the City of Chicago in 1987 as a streetlight repairman in the Department of Streets and Sanitation. Bob worked diligent to all tasks and rose through the ranks, eventually becoming the managing deputy commissioner, the third highest ranked position within the Department of Transportation. He demonstrated marked experience and skill in management, public relations, telecommunications, operations and hands-on community amenities to constituents of every age across this great city, selflessly providing quality service to aldermen, peers, staff and laymen alike...
Bob entered into sunset surrounded by his family and close friends. He will be held in the highest esteem as one of the hardest working city employees and one of the best dressed people in City Hall. His indomitable spirit, ceaseless allegiance and distinct sense of style will long and indelibly convey pleasure to those who knew and worked with him. His exemplary service, attention to detail, care and concern will undoubtedly be missed.
