Rob was always a steady rock, even when we were all young (and the rest of us foolish).

He always stepped in to help regardless of the situation.

Our thoughts & prayers are with you.

Truly, life will never be the same without, Rob. We will always remember our wonderful friend and neighbour with his kind heart, generous spirit. We will always miss our chats with Rob. Our many chats, from Keith and Rob sharing stories about fishing and where to find some great fishing spots. Rob and I chatted about many things, he was very well read. Rob always enjoy sharing his pictures of his newest additon to his family or the pictures taking with Greg in the park, of the animals that lived there. And pictures of the Hawk who would come for a visit to our yards. Our Lab, Abby always loved seeing Rob and enjoyed the long walks with him, they were a treat My walks with her was usually around the block. We appreciated Rob for his kindness and stepping in when we needed a good friend the most. Please, know that we are sending our deepest sympathy ! "I saw the Hawk today."
