Bob McDonough, rest in peace

The university has announced that one of its greatest benefactors, Robert McDonough (F'49), has died. Bob McDonough, after whom the McDonough School of Business is named, was a huge supporter of Hoya hoops. I'll never forget his offer to students who traveled to California see the Hoyas play Maryland in the 2001 Sweet 16 that he would trade his luxury box seats to jump around with the kids close to the court. I actually attended the ceremony at Georgetown on Bob McDonough day when the Business School was officially named after him. He seemed like a gentleman through and through. And he loved Georgetown and the Hoyas. God Speed!
