Arcon Announces the Passing of Bob Bird
June 29, 2016

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bob Bird on June 20, 2016.  In 1965, Bob co-founded Arcon which at the time was the first known forensic type engineering investigation firm assisting the Insurance and Legal industries.  He led Arcon as President for over 40 years.  By the time Bob retired in 2006, he had firmly set the standard for quality investigative work and ethical behaviour in the forensic engineering field that are hallmarks of the organization to this day.  Bob’s memory lives on at Arcon through the many pictures of him and his work, the engineers that he hired and are now leading the company and perhaps most importantly, the culture that he was instrumental in defining.  May he rest in peace.
