There are some people who bring a smile to your face the second you see them. For me, Bob Beyer is one of those people. I was never sure of his title at DNR's Wildlife and Heritage Service. In a semi-successful attempt to hide the ever-dwindling number of administrators, biologists and technicians, Bob's duties and title were always shifting and I almost always guessed wrong before settling on: deputy, assistant, associate director of getting things done right. Because that's what he did. Now he doesn't have any title.
