CLASS Fund Board Member and Longtime Friend of LASN
by Staff

Rob Sawyer Founded Land Concern in 1974.

Rob Sawyer, ASLA, was the president of Land Concern, a CLASS Fund Board Member, and a longtime friend of LASN. He passed away Friday afternoon, January 13, after a long battle with cancer.


Rob's landscape construction industry exposure came early in life through his father's business as a landscape contractor and retail nursery owner for over fifty years. Rob grew up working with his father and that was the beginning of what is now a long and successful career as a licensed landscape architect. He founded his own Landscape Architecture firm in 1974 with a desire to do what he loves and has been at it ever since.

A memorial service is being planned for February, and the Chapter will notify members and colleagues once the information becomes available. Rob is survived by his wife, Janet, his daughter Christy, son Greg and his grandchildren, Tyler and Nicole.
