I had the honor of meeting Rob at Thompson Cancer Survival Center in the Genetics Department. Rob knew me by name, he didn't meet a stranger. Rob would often ask if I needed anything or how he could offer assistance, with his smile that brightened up the room. I am fortunate that God saw fit for us to cross paths. I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to thank him and praise him for his hard work and great work ethic every chance that I received. Rob's shoes will truly be a hard task to fill. Rob received his final work assignment on 11/8/2018. Rob is gone but will never be forgotten in the lives of so many! I offer my condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. May you take a piece of Rob's spirit with you daily with offering a smile and warmth. May you live each day to the fullest as though it's your last and remind those who you come in contact with as well as your loved ones, how much you appreciate and love them! Thank you Rob for allowing me to view life differently!

Kind Regards,

Taheera DaCosta

I had the privilege of working with Rob at Thompson Cancer Center for 15 years. He was by far my favorite member of the administration team. Always helpful. Always smiling. Always encouraging. I wish I could have hired him at TCS. Rest In Peace.
