Carson City, Nevada - Governor Brian Sandoval released the following statement today after learning of the death of Bob Faiss.

“It is with great sorrow that I learned today of the passing of my good friend, Bob Faiss.  Bob will be remembered not only for his impact on the gaming industry, but for his indelible and generational contributions statewide.  A legend in Carson City and throughout the state, Bob enjoyed universal respect and admiration.  Most of all, Bob was a true gentleman who loved his family and state.  Nevada has lost one of its true giants today.  Kathleen and I send our most sincere prayers and condolences to Linda and his family and friends at this difficult time.
