"Bob has seen countless changes to UNMC over the past 30 years," said Andrew Balus, director of project management. "Not only has Bob remodeled a number of spaces, he's remodeled several of them more than once.

"Bob's even demeanor, sense of humor and level of professionalism have remained constant through all of the changes," Balus said. "He's been a pleasure to work with, and he will be missed by all of us."

Dietrich will retire on Jan. 5.
