The Secrets to Longevity Continue: Robert (Bob) McKinney

As part of our year-long celebration of the Boca Grande Health Clinic’s 75th anniversary, the Clinic is pleased present a short series of web videos that capture some of the “secrets” to having a long, productive life – told by some of the Island’s elders.

The third episode of the series features Robert (Bob) McKinney, WWII veteran, engineer, attorney, banker, political operative, husband, and father. Bob never met a challenge he couldn’t conquer, as proven by a lifetime of business success as chairman and CEO of two public companies and founder of a prestigious law practice. At 96, he continues to serve on boards, including at Indiana University (where the law school carries his name) and the U.S. Naval Academy Foundation.

To keep up with Bob, you’ll need to wake at dawn and maintain a steady pace. Watch Bob’s secrets to longevity, Episode 3.
