Rob and I were cousins. Lived very close to each other, and were 2 months apart. We were together often as kids and more as teens. Our lives drifted apart and we lost contact. Early this year, we hooked up on fb, and it was like we never losr a beat. We had many arguments on politics, but we always told each other, " I love you". Fly high cous....I will miss you..grateful to have been together for a short while...
I love you..

Rob was a friend and colleague who was always a super nice guy! He would do anything to help you! Always a smile and a dedicated technician where we worked together at Wayne Automation. He taught me alot and he will surely be missed and always remembered! RIP Rob!

Rob and I met just after he got out of the US Air Force at Tung-Sol headlamp factory in Boyertown. We became close friends immediately. A year later we traveled the country together with our girl friends. We separated and reunited several times during our 3 month journey. Ah, and those intense nights playing Back Alley and Cribbage that practically always lasted until sunrise! Those memories often enter my thoughts and conversations. Rest in peace my friend you were a special part of my life.

My deepest condolences to Rob's family. I met Rob years ago as a customer of his while he worked as a technician for Wayne Automation. Rob was a character. He was smart, inventive, social, unbelievably dedicated & committed and all around just a really really good guy/friend who could make the atmosphere a lot more bearable during trying times - with that crazy laugh of his. RIP Rob !!!
