We are saddened to inform you of the passing of our partner, colleague and friend,  Harold Sobel. 

A lasting legacy
Harold began his full-time career at Sobel & Co. in 1979 upon his graduation from Bentley University.  For the next thirty-seven years, Harold's career was distinguished by an adherence to strong values and a commitment to building deep relationships.  He continuously reinforced the importance of putting our clients' needs first.  That's because for Harold it was never about just "getting the work done."  Instead it was about serving as a true trusted advisor.  Along with a passion for client care delivered at the highest levels, Harold was equally as dedicated to mentoring and guiding those who worked with him.  He set the bar and challenged us all to achieve high standards and in the process he helped us to be our very best. From our youngest staff to our senior partners, Harold was a role model who refused to compromise on quality.

Harold had recently informed the firm that he was going to begin reducing his hours in the office in order to begin a seamless transition toward retirement. He was looking forward to starting a new chapter in his life.  Unfortunately, his plans were interrupted by a fight against cancer and then by his sudden passing early Sunday morning.

Harold is survived by his wife of 29 years, Bobbie, and their daughter, Jamie.  He is also survived by his father and Sobel & Co.'s founder, Bernard Sobel, his brother and current firm managing partner Alan Sobel (Dana), sister Dot Libman (Victor), seven nieces and nephews, three great nieces and countless friends and clients. 

Harold's presence, influence, counsel and inspiration will be missed by all of us at Sobel & Co. and those who were fortunate to work with him.
