Congratulations Bob Patterson!

Bob Patterson, the recipient of the 2013 Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Award

We would like to honor and congratulate one of Intech Service’s founders, Bob Patterson, for receiving the 2013 Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Award in Community Service. One might know Bob for his great achievements in building Intech Services to what it is today, but he also has achieved much outside of the business and in retirement has been able to invest even more time in these volunteer efforts.

The Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Awards recognize exceptional individuals and groups who make a difference in Delaware by volunteering countless hours to benefit Delawareans. 

The recipients of these awards have made significant contributions by improving the lives of those less fortunate, advocating for causes and raising both money and awareness for important needs.  These individuals are strong leaders who are inspiring and generous in there support of volunteerism. 

Bob has been an integral part of Sussex County’s Habitat for Humanity for nearly 20 years.  Doing everything from volunteering with construction, sitting on the Board of Directors, and being a member of the Construction Management Team, Bob has completed homes in over 10 towns in Sussex County. 

In the past 5 years, Bob has worked over 2500 volunteer hours and in the past year alone he has completed 22 projects.  A Brush with Kindness, Bob’s newest challenge, helps homeowners who live in owner-occupied poverty homes with much-needed repairs and renovations.  As the leader of A Brush with Kindness, Bob has led youth, adults, and seniors on projects such as ramp building for wheelchairs and replacing roofs. 

Bob’s love of Habitat for Humanity has no limits.  In addition to his work in Delaware, he has traveled to Alabama, Mexico, and Guatemala to participate in other construction projects.  Additionally, Bob volunteers with his church in Lewes as well as another organization, Samaritan’sPurse

Thank you Bob for all your great work!
