I have known Rob and been his friend for as long as I can remember. I was 2 years his senior in school graduating in 1977, I had the pleasure of meeting Rob as he was in my Brother Jeff's 1979 class and in later years Marrying another classmate Rich Griner. His smile will always be remembered & how kind hearted of a man he was. It has been more than a few years since we had seen each other or spoken but that doesn't make me remember or love him any less. Rest in peace my friend and my love and prayers to your family!
