Robert L. Brodbeck

Wellspring suffered a terrible loss with the sudden death of our COO, Bob Brodbeck, on October 4, 2017.  Bob was truly committed to Wellspring’s mission, staff and clients. He was a big part of this organization; his presence permeated the agency.  Whatever the project, Bob was always willing to help “git ‘er done” – often suggesting creative solutions that brought humor to even the most daunting situations.  

Bob developed regular Monday morning Leadership and Quality Training sessions for his team as a way to encourage and enable them to constantly look for ways to improve themselves and their job performance. His philosophy was that everyone can be a leader, regardless of their role or title.

In addition to his role at Wellspring, Bob was pastor at Kentuckiana Dream Center and a proud Navy veteran.  A deeply committed family man, Bob often shared stories about his wife, Diane, and his children and grandchildren - we’ll miss the photos and artwork that enlivened his office walls.  The “goat tales” he loved sharing will never be forgotten.  The trials and tributlations that “Abby” and “Boaz” brought to Bob’s life made for some hilarious stories that brightened many a day here at Wellspring.

Bob was so much more than just our COO - he was a friend, a confidant, a mentor and a coach - and he will be deeply missed by all those whose lives he touched.
