I met Rob at the Edmond Mid-high. And we were friends up until his passing. The Rob I knew had a big heart, soft spoken and never really complain around me. We are the same age and it brings a reality check. I will miss him. I am sorry for the loss of a son and brother to the family. Some one passing suddenly is always a shock. May God comfort you all in this time of loss and need.

I'll always remember Rob in his red car with Cheyenne riding shotgun. A real cool dude, a true gentleman. My thoughts and prayers for everyone❤️

From the first time I met Rob, he became a good friend. He had his silly moments but he was always loyal to those he welcomed into his life. He loved his family, extended, and close knit. Rob went through a lot of trials and tribulations throughout his life. Nevertheless he had a smile when he landed. He will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to be a part of his life. God Speed my dear friend!
