Rob was one of those guys you just had to love,

A gentle giant whom I had so much respect for. He dealt with plenty of downs in his life but always managed to see the bright side and made sure he made it to that side!! I will greatly miss his inspiring messages he always posted and make sure I always take his perspective on life!!

I love you Rob and you will be in my heart forever!!
