Linda and I met Robbie in Florida a few years ago and fast became pool buddies and shared many dinners and a few glasses of wine together. Rob was a true gentleman and will be so missed by those of us who had the honor to know him.

Words can’t express our sadness in learning of Rob’s passing. Our prayers and thoughts go out to Candace and the family.

I will never forget Rob and Candice love and concern, when my wife Liz was sick and he and Candice then attended her funeral in Michigan, Rob played hundreds of games of Words with Friends with Liz all through her ilness and she loved it. I know he wll be missed but a good life will never be forgotten. Kindness is a gift from God and he had it and used it . Liz will be talking with him right now about the pool friends. Love from Andy.

Whenever I see a rose, I think of the beautiful rose bushes Rob grew. He always had the prettiest roses.

As snowbirds from Canada, we had the great pleasure of making friends with Rob and Candy and their family in Venice. Over the last several years we have had wonderful trips to La Grange and they made trips to Canada. A very special friendship was formed that we treasure.

We cannot express how very much you and your beautiful smile and fabulous sense of humour will be missed Robbie.

Candy, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

God bless.

We met Rob and Candy in Florida through Bob and Marilyn White about 5 years ago, and became part of that friendship. It was with great disbelief that we received the news that Rob had died suddenly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Candy, family and friends for their loss of a great husband, father, grandfather and friend, he will be sorely missed by us all. God bless .
