I just barely found out Rob died last year. I knew him when he worked at the Iceplant and Highland High school. I’m sorry to hear he died so young.. I sure did love his blue Nova!! Good times with his friend Steve (Magilla) too.

This makes me so sad, he was a wonderful friend that would give you the shirt off his back if you needed. Such a brilliant mind, he will be so missed.

Sorry to hear of his passing. He was a good friend, and we will miss him.
