Rob was always a friend during our time at Troop 715. Whether at meetings or camp outs, I’ll remember him as a very nice guy with a sense of humor.

Rob was my desk buddy for many many years. I told him he will go crazy sitting next to me and I can't believe it but he never did! When I got breast cancer, he ALWAYS asked me how I was feeling or just sent me a good morning message if I was having to work from home. He was the kindest human I knew.

He loved telling stories about the boys growing up and how proud he was of them both. Rob was so excited to start working on all of Sharon's honey do's (even if he wasn't going to tell her how much he loved doing those things [he said with a laugh]) once he retired. He could wait to just spend time with his favorite people - his family. His laugh was infectious and I will miss him so very much.

I can't tell you how many people have reached out to me to share in a story or just telling me how kind he was and that he will be very missed. xoxo

Sharon I am so heartbroken to hear of Rob's passing. I have known you since high school and met Rob when you guys started dating. So many good, fun memories of being with you two and in your wedding many years ago.

I will never forget your kindness along with Rob and the boys when my daughter passed away and your family came and cleaned up my yard.

I have loved watching your family grow and the enjoyment you and Rob have with the grandchildren.

Keeping you all in my prayers and thinking of you.

Much love,

Debbie
