Support our Round Pond Estate team for the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer's®, the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. We are walking in honor of Bob MacDonnell, age 83, who after a long battle with Alzheimer’s, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 18th, 2021 surrounded by his family.  

He was a much loved husband, father, brother, business partner and friend. He had an outrageous sense of humor and tremendous sense of humility. He loved being a Marine. He was a great athlete, and loved to compete. Bob was good with people, was a kind and generous person, and a wonderful mentor to many. He felt very fortunate for the many blessings of his life and would help others in whatever way he could. As a father, he tried to impart the lessons and wisdom he had gained throughout his life, which he referred to as "his lectures". He would conclude these discussions with a simple "end of lecture", and a smile. He loved vanilla ice cream and shocked us all when he switched to chocolate. He became obsessed with golf and even won the AT&T Pro-Am at Pebble Beach in 1999. Looking back, he always said to be successful you need hard work, timing and luck, and with those one could accomplish anything. Professionally he worked for Arthur Anderson, and found his home as a partner at KKR, working with his brother-in-law and many others whom he considered family. With his wife Jannine, he bought land in Napa Valley in 1978, and found joy in being a farmer, building his family business, Round Pond Estate, and in the great beauty of wine country.

Dad was known as Lucky Bob, but the truth is, it was all of us who were lucky to have known and loved him. He will be greatly missed. Above all else, Bob wanted to be remembered as a great Dad, which he was. End of Lecture.
