Bob Wild fought the fight and changed the world. He lives on in those that knew him or knew of him.  Bob Wild May 1st, 1970 – November 3rd, 2012.  He died after a long and courageous battle with Cystic Fibrosis, following his second double-lung transplant. He was 42 years old.  Bob married the love of his life, Margaret.  They were blessed with their two daughters in January 2003.   Bob had a long career at Ford Motor Co. as a Frame Engineer. Sadly, his body began to succumb to the genetic disease he was born with. He fought a brave and valiant fight, being gifted with a second chance at continuing life, with a double-lung transplant in March 2008, He was such a ‘fighter’, among other qualities, that UPMC Presbyterian gave him a third chance at life, in July 2012, with another set of lungs. The doctors were always amazed and impressed with his will to live. Bob and his family are eternally grateful for the most generous gifts of life that the donor families gave to Bob. Sadly, Burkholderia Cepacia ravaged his body for the three months following his second transplant, and his body finally gave in, but Bob never gave up, and neither did the doctors who tried to save him. Bob died with his wife and brother-in-law by his side.

Thanks to those who are donating in his memory:
