Governor Sisolak issues statement on passing of Carson City Mayor Robert “Bob” Crowell

CARSON CITY, NV – September 12, 2020

Today, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak issued the following statement on the passing of Carson City Mayor Robert “Bob” Crowell.

“I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Carson City Mayor Bob Crowell. A native Nevadan, Vietnam Veteran, family man and dedicated public servant, Mayor Crowell truly embodied what it means to be a Nevadan. It would be impossible to overstate just how much he meant to his neighbors and all of the families in our state capital.

Throughout his life, Bob served Nevadans with honesty and integrity, whether as president of the State Bar of Nevada or president of the Carson City School Board of Trustees. His work earned him multiple honors, including the Robert Broadbent Distinguished Service Award from the Nevada Chapter of the American Public Works Association, the Participatory Democracy Award for 2018 from the Nevada Association of Counties and the State Bar of Nevada Presidential Award recognizing a member whose conduct, honesty and integrity represents the highest standards of the legal profession.

Nevada is a better State because of Bob.

Kathy and I send our love and condolences to Carson City and the Crowell family – including his wife Susan, his four children and two grandchildren – and friends and we’ll keep them in our thoughts and prayers over the difficult days ahead.”
