On behalf of NPI’s Board of Directors and Membership, we are deeply saddened to announce the death of Rene Bates, NPI’s partner, sponsor, a passionate supporter of the purchasing profession, and most importantly our friend.
A memorial service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, March 7, 2020 at Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Funeral Home Chapel, 2525 Central Expressway North, Allen, Texas 75013.
Rene was a man of great integrity with a spirit of adventure, a sense of purpose and capacity for growth. He was a great source for encouragement, support, and was committed to the continued success of NPI.
Our deepest sympathy to Sheryl and the entire family, please keep them in your thoughts and prayers in the coming days.
