I have been asked to write a piece about Rob Madoff for this special issue of DCR to commemorate his editorship. My only qualification for this job is that I have known Rob for about 29 years. We first met at the University of Minnesota during our fellowship. Over the past 3 decades, we have remained close friends who get together at the ASCRS meetings and, occasionally, when we find ourselves in the other’s hometown, for other reasons. Thus, I have had the opportunity to spend many an enjoyable evening or afternoon in his company. What follows are some anecdotes and remembrances of the occasions that we have shared together, as well as some unsolicited observances and comments about the man. I will start with the latter and move on to the former.
