Rob loved telling tall tales of his friends and the fishing trips they went on.  Rob had a knack for golf and would play countless hours until he was extremely sunburned.  He loved cooking and for years at Thanksgiving, Rob would fry dozens of turkeys for friends and family.

The one thing everyone who knew Rob would say is that he had a big heart. A really big one!  He was consistent and unwavering in his demeanor. Rob seldom cracked a smile but when he did, you knew it was sincere and from the heart. Rob’s passing was way too soon. He was loved and will be missed by all.
