Sadly, Robert left this world on June 29, 2017, after a long illness. He endured so much suffering but still had a kind word and a cheerful spirit.
Rob was a great person. He was generous, kind, loving and would give you the shirt off his back to help you.
He was a wonderful friend to so many, great brother and beloved son.
His most cherished role in life was being a Dad to Riley, Morgan, Michael and Jack. He loved his children fiercely and was so proud of each of them. He will be deeply missed by his children and all who knew and loved him.
In honor of Rob's memory we have established this GO FUND ME page to raise money for his children's education.
We thank you in advance for your generosity.
