Being a dreamer as a child, Goldbard continued, “He was made for the world that is being born right now, he was a child of dreams, and whatever he imagined, no matter how crazy, he made real,”
Lee worked with Google in the 2000s, where he contributed to the creation of Android. A request for feedback from Cash App did not receive a prompt response. Krista, Lee’s wife, and their two kids are left behind.
“Bob’s real resume is the hearts and minds he touched in his time on earth,” Goldbard said. “Bob’s legacy is the feeling that you can make a difference if you try, and of course his amazing children.”
