Dr. Robert Hye died on Monday, February 22, 2016. Bob was a vascular surgeon in San Diego, California with Kaiser Permanente at San Diego Medical Center. He received his medical degree from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. In practice for 36 years, he published over 158 articles and was an active member of Western Vascular Society for many years. To honor his passion for vascular surgery and education his loved ones have requested that in lieu of flowers we set up a Robert Hye Memorial fund through Western Vascular Society. According to Past President Ronald Dalman, MD "Bob was a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of the WVS and never missed a meeting, since the mid 90s. He served with the local arrangements chair every time the WVS was held in the San Diego area. We are grateful that Bob presented on the program regularly, even after he left academic practice." Most importantly, Bob’s work will live on through the fact he mentored many academic vascular surgeons on the West Coast.The fund will be used to support the Hye Resident Paper Award (formerly the Best Trainee Competition) and other student activities sponsored by the WVs.
