Robert G Brodows
March 14, 1943 – September 29, 2019
Robert G. Brodows, 76, passed away on September 29, 2019. He was the husband of Brenda Stults-Brodows of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. They were married for 27 years.
Robert was born on March 14, 1943 in Manhattan, NY, the elder son of Shirley Cohn Brodows and H. George Brodows. During his youth the family resided in Rochester, NY. He later attended Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH, and the University of Pittsburgh Medical School.
After graduating, Bob returned to Rochester where he served patients with diabetes and a variety of endocrine disorders. While in Rochester, Bob also began conducting clinical research in Endocrinology at Monroe Community Hospital and Genesee Hospital. In 1986, Bob moved to Nashville, TN, where he opened a private Endocrinology practice and continued serving the needs of patients as a warm, caring clinician and clinical investigator. In 1999, his desire to further improve the health of patients led him to join Eli Lilly & Company in Indianapolis, IN, serving as a clinical scientist, helping to develop new therapies for patients with diabetes. In 2009, Bob retired from Lilly and opened a consulting practice where he conducted global clinical trials for several major drug companies. Bob was a highly regarded and prominent research scientist. Throughout his life and career, Bob was beloved by his patients, staff, and team. He was a dedicated, thoughtful, honest, incredibly kind physician, scientist, mentor, and colleague.
But Bob’s greatest roles were those of father, brother, husband, and friend. He excelled in these most of all.
Bob was an avid sportsman, excelling in golf, tennis, and running. He traveled all over the world, and enjoyed engaging with many international colleagues/friends and experiencing other cultures and food.
His loss is keenly felt by all of those who had the opportunity to know him. Bob is survived by Brenda; his son, Scott (Cathy); grandchildren, Ethan, Maya and Ari; his son, Kirk (Seo Jung); brother, Bill (Debbie); nephew, James (Yoldyz); niece, Emily Brodows Wallace (William); brother-in- law, Rodger Stults (Ramsay); sister in-law, Dawn Stults Terry (John); LilliMei, his beloved canine baby girl; and a host of cherished friends and extended family.
A memorial service will be held on Thursday, October 3, at 12:00 pm EST, at Temple Beth Am in Jupiter, FL. The family will sit Shiva at 109 Villa Nueva Place, Palm Beach Gardens, FL at 2:00pm on Thursday, October 3 and from 1:00 pm to sundown on Friday, October 4.

Dear Bob, you are one of the best CRPs I have worked with in Lilly in past 18 years. Sincere thanks for your professionalism, efficiency, flexibility and guidance, you have been my great teacher and friend. I do greatly remember your wonderful trip to Hong Kong. Rest in peace.
