Congressman Bob Michel
Words cannot express the deep sorrow felt by Tazewell County Republicans at the loss of our great leader Bob Michel. His decades of service to our country make us proud to say we know him and we will always remember his many accomplishments. He truly had a way about him that gave you confidence in our government, you just knew all was well.
In our eyes, Bob Michel will always be our Hall of Fame Statesmen and Congressman who will live on forever.
On behalf of Tazewell County I want to extend our heartfelt sympathy to the family of Bob Michel in their time of great sorrow.
