Monday, July 19, 2010 was a sad day for our Eagle Newspapers family.  We lost an amazing, talented, dedicated newspaper man, king of advertising sales, and dear friend.  Bob Schoenkopf, 85, passed away from a recently diagnosed illness.

His last few working years were spent at the helm of Eagle’s Northwest Senior & Boomer News publication.  Bob, who recently retired after 50+ years in the business, spent the last couple weeks of his life in the hospital surrounded by loving family members and friends who, up until the last, were the beneficiaries of Bob’s well-known quick, dry wit and feistiness.

We were privileged to know you and to learn from you, Bob.  You will be missed.
