Very sorry to hear of Rob’s passing. I found him to be a spirited & very generous man with his knowledge of horticulture. His passion for his family & his coworkers was infectious. Rob always challenged me to do more for the growers I worked with. I will keep his family in my prayers & hope he will rest peacefully.

I knew Rob’s sisters. Patty was my age, and Rob came along much later, so my memories of Rob come from his childhood. This is what I most vividly remember: I was about 14, and my brother Pete was 12. We were just coming back to the Yakima Ski Club for lunch when Rob, who probably was between 3 and 4 years old, emerged carrying a tangle of skis and poles. “Put them on me,” he commanded. Pete and I obediently lined up the skis and started stuffing Rob’s small boots into old-fashioned bindings. The gear was unfamiliar, Rob was wiggly, and it took us about 20 minutes to get him in the skis, and equipped with the poles that had been dropped over and over. We stepped back, satisfied that we had finally got him ready for the slopes. “Take it off,” he said. “I have to go to the bathroom.”

I was gone from Yakima for many years, and didn’t see Rob until we began to cross paths at funerals: Lettie Ann Ginn’s, Charley De La Chappelle’s, and finally Rob’s dad’s funeral. He seemed to be a great guy. I am so sorry for his family’s loss.

To everything there is a season. Rob showed throughout his life that he cared about the important things. Family, friends, helping others and a true moral compass defined his life. He is a credit to his parents and to his immediate family. An extremely hard worker who didn’t cut corners. Having fun and a great sense of humor was always in with him. He will be missed and I will post a sign on a block of orchard that he always encouraged me to plant. Thoughts and prayers to Erin and the boys. What a great dad and husband.
