Legacy

Robert L. Barclay

Robert L. BarclayR.L. Barclay & Associates was named after Rebecca L. Barclay (Becky) and Robert L. Barclay (Bob).  The company was founded by Becky Barclay Prewitt on April 19, 2012.  It was with high hopes that Bob would be working as a part-time consultant for the company during his retirement.  He granted Becky permission to use the family name for her business, R.L. Barclay & Associates, which she gladly did out of respect and admiration for her father and the generations before her.  At that time Bob was in his second year of a three-year battle with cancer.  Unfortunately, he lost his battle on January 16th, 2013.  While losing her father was painful and difficult, Becky honors him and his legacy.  Without his advice and guidance, Becky would not have been able to start and grow a successful business.  Bob is no longer here to offer his wisdom and advice, but he is always in our hearts and minds each and every day.
