It is with great sadness we report that BMW CCA Member #1, Bob Mehrman, the club’s first president and one of its founding members, passed away on February 17, 2019. “We often opine that it is the cars that bring us together, but we stay for the people. Bob’s 50-year tenure with BMW CCA embodies the true spirit of the club and everything we are today, what we were yesterday, and what we will be tomorrow. His actions, membership, and support, begun some 50 years ago, gave rise to the largest BMW community in the world. Those of us sharing in the blessings, the joy, the fun, and the family of that community will forever be grateful,” said Frank Patek, the BMW CCA’s executive director.
We will continue to celebrate the life of Bob Mehrman and his incredible contributions to the club in an upcoming issue of Roundel magazine.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests expressions of sympathy be made to Care Dimensions, 75 Sylvan Street, Danvers, MA 01923 or The American Cancer Society.
