"By uniting not only the Asian American community in Washington, but many people of diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds, Bob proved that lasting change comes from a united front," state Sen. Bob Hasegawa said in a statement on behalf of the the Washington Democrats. "There are children and families who received health care because of him, who got housing or were able to buy their first home because of him — not many people can say they had such a direct impact on the lives of their neighbors. His legacy will live on in their memories and ours. Like many of my colleagues, I am proud to have called Bob a friend. He was a mentor and moral anchor for our entire community."Seattle Mourns Community Leader 'Uncle' Bob Santos, Dead at 82 - NBC News
