Robert (Bob) Louis Quick
Oct 10, 1946 - Apr 04, 2012
Forsyth County
Robert Louis Quick (Bob), of Winston-Salem, died at age 65, on April 4, 2012.

Bob was born in Saginaw, Michigan, to Albert and Patricia Quick, who preceded him in death. He graduated in 1964 from Arthur Hill High School, and from Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan in 1968 with a degree in History. After college, Bob moved to Boston to attend Boston University School of Theology, and graduated with a Masters in Theology in 1971. Bob came to North Carolina in 1971 to attend law school at the University of North Carolina, where he met his wife, Betty. He received his J.D. from UNC School of Law in 1974 and served as an editor of The Law Review. Bob moved to Winston-Salem in 1974 to join the law firm of Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, where he practiced in the Public Finance Department. He was an active member of the North Carolina Bar Association and National Association of Bond Lawyers. Bob was an avid golfer and nothing excited him more than his regular Saturday morning gangsomes at Forsyth Country Club and his golf trips to Scottsdale and Myrtle Beach with his best friends. He was happiest with a golf club in his hand and on a golf course winning a few dollars from his buddies. He loved all sports, having played collegiate tennis and basketball. He channeled his passion for the games into coaching his children’s basketball and soccer teams.

Bob is survived by his wife of 38 years, Betty, and their two children whom he adored, Robert Andrew Quick of Asheville, NC and Sara Elizabeth Quick of Chapel Hill, NC. He is also survived by three sisters, Diane Wiener (husband Morris) of Cherry Hill, NJ, Sally Payne of Naples, FL, and Joan Peters (husband Doug) also of Naples, FL. He leaves behind many sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nephews and nieces.

The family requests that memorials be made to the UNC School of Law, 160 Ridge Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27599, to Crossnore School, 100 DAR Drive, Crossnore, NC 28616, or to a charity of the donor’s choice.

A Memorial Service will be held at Mount Tabor United Methodist Church on Monday April 9, 2012, at 11:00 a.m. The family will greet friends in the Fellowship Hall after the service.

Salem Funeral and Cremation Services, Reynolda Chapel, is assisting the Quick family.

Bob and Betty were among the very first to welcome me to Womble Carlyle and the NC Bar Association back in the '90s. They were extraordinary examples to us "newbies" of the finest and best of our profession and firm, and they remain so. Even these many years later, from my new home across the country, I think often and fondly of Bob and Betty and all their tremendous and meaningful mentorship continues to mean to me. Bob will be sorely missed and always lovingly remembered.

I always thougth so much of you and Bob and I am very saddened by his untimely death. Please accept my deepest sympathies. O. Max

Ozzie, Carol, Christie & David Carlson
Dear Betty, Robert and Sara, It is with very fond memories we shared as family that we savor our many times together. Though we all wished for more, our distant lives kept us apart. Our lives have been so enriched by your friendship, which we very much hope will continue to grow and prosper over the years. Bob and I were best of friends from our college days where together we formed the very first collegiate teams for a vey young Oakland University. We first met on the basketball court. Bob was our designated 3-point man before there was a 3 - point line. He pitched for our college baseball team, forever banishing my little league curveball to the outfield. On the tennis court Bob was amazing, having qualified a few years after college for the US Open. Many of the things Bob tried for the first time, I instigated. From skiing, to water skiing, to fishing and getting him to ask Betty to marry him; which is the best thing he ever did.
 
 
Bob and Jennifer Pierce
We are saddened and shocked to hear of the loss of a wonderful friend and colleague. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. We know the days ahead will be difficult but we hope knowing that you have many friends holding you in their hearts will help sustain you. Bob was a wonderful person and will be greatly missed. All our love, Jennifer and Bob

Robert and Carole Browne
Dear Betty, Sarah and Robert, We heard of Bob's passing from Katie yesterday. It was a shock to hear of this sad development. Bob was such a kind man, with gentle humor. I'll fondly remember when Bob and I coached Sarah and Katie's basketball team and of course the time spent on the soccer sidelines. I'm not sue if Katie has responded yet since she's in Madagascar but she would frequently mention how she liked to "hang out" with Bob watching golf and other sports. Jenny has also always had kind words about Bob, sDDaying how cool he was. This has to be such a hard time for all of you. Of course if there's anything we can do, just let us know. Carole and and I will be at the service on Monday and I know Katie will be there in her heart. Fondly, Bob and Carole Browne
