Former colleagues of Robert H. “Bob” Carey are quick to say how much the man contributed to the municipal bond industry, as well as to their careers. They are also quick to recall his good-natured sense of humor and hearty laugh as much as his pragmatism and resolve.
As a bond attorney for more than five decades, Mr. Carey was able to mentor many young lawyers during his career. He also saw the industry develop and played a role in its evolution. He died Thursday at age 79.
