I have enjoyed working with Rob professionally and getting to know him on a personal level as well. He always exhibited spiritual gifts of patience, kindness, and gentleness with a quiet confidence rarely seen in life. His smile was infectious and unforgettable along with his brilliance and sense of humor. Rob honored the Lord in his walk here, that is why I rejoice that while absent here, he will be ever present with Him. To Rob's family, may you be comforted and encouraged with God's peace that passes all understanding. Richard Wright, September 23, 2014 Rob, you left a beautiful mark on this world. Two beautiful children and four beautiful grandchildren. You also left the mark of your life and your love on those that you knew and cared deeply for. May you rest in peace knowing your memory will live on in the hearts of those of us that were touched by you.
