Remembering Bob Michel

The Congressional Award mourns the loss of former House GOP Leader Bob Michel.

A champion of consideration and bipartisanship, Bob was a model public servant for decades. Michel participated in Congress’ only charity with great zeal during his 38 year tenure in Congress and supported the program well after his retirement.

As we celebrate his distinguished life, we recount President Nixon’s words when Mr. Michel retired from the House; “Bob had many opponents, but no enemies.”
