Bob Greer was a prince of a man and funny like his brother John. He was a well respected banker as his father before him. He always had a smile on his face. RIP

Texas banking lost one of our legends with the death of Robert Griffin “Bob” Greer.
I will remember Bob as a “Tall Texan” who loved life and was always ready to share a few good stories! He was an accomplished leader, dedicated family man and a great community banker. May the loving peace of God be with Joan and Bob’s family and friends.

I was so saddened to hear of Bob's passing and wanted to share that with his family. Bob and I shared often and became friends as we were both involved in the Houston banking industry. Bob was an exceptional man and an outstanding and accomplished banker and leader. He had many, many, friends and admirers who looked up to him and valued their relationship with him. Joe Dean Phipps

The last time I saw Bob was on June 28th when Pinkie and I had dinner with the Greers. We shared so many memories together and had a great time. I will always remember those conversations that we shared together.

Bob was such a special person! We got to know Bob and Joan better as we both moved into the Tradition. We had many fun dinners and receptions together. David and Bob shared many great stories at dinner. We would always look forward to these times! We will truly miss his company and look forward to spending more time with Joan. May God bless the Greer Family!
