    Uncle Rob will be missed by everyone who knew him. He was a remarkable man whose passion and devotion to his family was second to none. He was a man of so many skills and talents and loved to share those and teach as much as he could to our kids. We will miss him very much and wish all of you much strength and love during this difficult time.
