My heartfelt condolences go out to Robs family. I recently got to know Rob through a mutual friend. He was such a wonderful person, even though I didn't know him that long he was always willing to lend a hand. After doing some work for me , he said pay when you can. Rob was honest and kind, he told me his reputation was more important than money. He was truly a great guy and will be missed. May he rest in peace and may Gods peace be upon his family.

Reed and family,
So sorry to hear of your loss, certainly not anticipated when our family leave so seemingly early in life, but apparently his work here was finished and he was allowed to go on to a much better place and work, awaiting those of us still struggling in this mortal estate. Hope all else is well with you and yours!

Often did we agree on the solutions,
but we always agreed on the respect.
He always refereed to U as his greatest
accomplishment, along with U,
I will miss him very much.
Until we meet again, RIP

I remember Robbie when he lived on Swartz rd up on the hill in that little tiny house with his mom and dad. Riding school bus. The Preston's and the brothers I grew up with were all a great bunch of boys. I'm sorry for the family, Robbie was always a nice person and I'm sure such reflected in his family. My heart goes out. Take care Robbie, till we meet one day again.
