AIA Middle TN regrets to inform you that Robert Boyd Bogle III passed away after a short courageous battle with cancer. Robert Boyd Bogle III was educated at Woodmont Grammar School, Hillsboro High School and graduated from Montgomery Bell Academy. While in high school, he began dating June Greer and continued their courtship throughout high school and college. He attended Georgia Institute of Technology where he received his degree in Architecture. In June of 1956 they were married and began their family as Boyd began his architecture practice with John Charles Wheeler and Associates. In 1968, he and John Badger opened their own firm of Badger-Bogle Architects. He was licensed in most of the southern states as well as designing the employee living quarters for King Fayed Hospital in Saudi Arabia. Their partnership practiced until 1998 after which he had his own firm. In his semi-retirement years, he did design work at John Coleman Hayes Contractors. One of the highlights of his last years was to be elected a commissioner in the city of Belle Meade. With his expertise and knowledge of how to further projects, he was a valuable member of the commission and loved being a part of it.
