Donate to The Bob Dubinsky Memorial Fund
Robert Dubinsky, who championed housing throughout the world and low-income housing in the United States, passed away on Tuesday, June 20, 2018, in his adopted home of Washington, D. C., where he moved from St. Louis in 1966. Bob worked for many organizations in the United States and abroad, including The U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, The Rand Corporation, USAID, Aspen Systems, Westat, and International City/County Managers Association. He concluded his career as Chairman of IHC Global in Washington, D. C. His overseas residential tours of duties were in Jamaica, Barbados and Israel and included
numerous consulting assignments in Eastern Europe.
Bob believed home ownership was an essential element of democracy. He was awarded the Justin Herman Memorial Award by the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials for his work in international housing. Bob lived a long, full and exemplary life, filled with joy and humor. Bob was devoted to his wife Louise Gish Dubinsky, and his two stepchildren, Margo Murray (Michael) and Stephen Weinress (Jaime). He loved his siblings, John Dubinsky and Linda Skrainka (deceased) and their spouses Yvette Drury Dubinsky and Stephen Skrainka, and he adored his six nephews and nieces, Anne Dubinsky Altman (Michael), Eleanor Dubinsky, Frank Dubinsky, Benjamin Skrainka, Sarah Skrainka, and Katherine Skrainka (Eric Stradal). Bob also leaves four step grandchildren and two great-nephews, Gibson and Burke Murray, Camden and Wesley Weinress, and Joey and Aaron Altman. He had many devoted friends in St. Louis, Washington, D. C. and throughout the world.
His friends and family have created the IHC Global Robert Dubinsky Fund in his honor, and are asking for donations in lieu of flowers. Please click the link below to contribute your donation today.
