Cindy, I am so very sorry to learn about Rob passing away so unexpectedly - the obituary captured him perfectly, with the comment about his sense of humor, he did have a wonderful sense of humor and loved to laugh. I'm sure he was a wonderful dad; you could see how much he loved you both. May your memories of all the good and happy times you have shared help get you through this very sad time. I hope you were able to get the ceramic nativity figures to him. Take care and God bless.

Dear Cindy and Dylan,
We are so sorry to hear about Rob. He will surely be missed by SO many people. Through the years Lennie and Rob had so much fun being the guys with the bikes and snowmobiles. He always made us laugh, no matter what was going on with him. I hope that you can find comfort in your many memories of him and we hope God will comfort you in your time of loss.
Lennie and Debbie

Sis and Dylan,
We will always hold Rob's humor and wit close to our hearts. Especially the off-color humor! (Does full moon sound familiar to anyone?!) He could certainly make us laugh! We will always remember our trips to the SU games - trudging up the hill in the blasted cold weather. I believe the best gift anyone can give or receive in life is the gift of their time. We will be forever greatful and blessed for the time we were able to spend with Rob over the years.
We love you and we will always be here for you,
Lenny, Roxanne and Josh

Even though we only know one and other in passing, your presence at all of Dylan's ball games shows a strong family bond. I am sad that it has been broken. You will feel his love when you need it it most. I know the cliche saying "time heals all wounds" It does. I lost my husband to cancer almost 17 years ago and there isn't a day when I don't think of him. All you have to do is look at Dylan your most prized pocession you shared with him. I'm a great listener and I always have tissues on hand if you need to have good cry. You to Dylan your always welcome at our house if you need an escape.

Cindy and Dylan, I can't begin to tell you how sad I am that you lost Rob, I too am very sad.He was such a great person.Even though we've only seen each other a few times over the past 40 years, he's always had a special place in my heart. I met him when I was 15, the second week of high school and I can remember it like it was yesterday. Even back then he was such a funny guy. I want to say to Uncle Bill and Aunt Jan, who I think are very special too, what a great job they did raising him. I have so many memories of them and being at the house on the lake. Cindy, Rob was the first person I ever loved and you are the last person he loved, I feel that we both are so very luckyto have known him and loved him. I will miss him alot. I will pray to God to help heal yours and Dylans broken hearts.

Cindy, Dylan and family, You can see by the beautiful messages and expression of sympathy just how much Rob is loved. The life he left behind tells so much about how he lived - a great partner to you Cindy, a loving father to Dylan and cherish friend to everyone else. The life you all had together is one that everyone hopes for. Rob left this earth a very wealthy man with all the things that cannot be bought.
