Washington, DC – Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today on the passing of esteemed Las Vegas attorney Robert Faiss.
“Nevada is a much better place because of the Faiss family. I’m terribly saddened at the loss of my friend Bob. Bob Faiss has accomplished much for our community, and his commitment to a better Nevada has always been at the forefront of his endeavors. He is accomplished and was recognized not only as one of Nevada’s best lawyers, but as one of the best lawyers in the United States. He will be missed by many in Boulder City and throughout the state whose lives were touched by his presence. The Faiss family and their friendship has meant so much to me. Wilbur, Theresa, their three sons, and their grandchildren should be proud of their more than 70 years of contributions to the growth and success of Nevada. I send my deepest condolences to his wife Linda, and to the rest of his family and friends who are mourning the loss of this truly wonderful man.”
