Rob was known to be friendly and would carry on a conversation with anyone about anything. It didn’t matter how young or old, he would take the time to talk and listen. Unlike most his age, Rob loved to pick up the phone and hear a voice. Rob will be dearly missed by his family, cousins, and friends from all walks of life.
