We are heavy hearted at the loss of our dear friend, Rob. Our family has so many wonderful memories of Rob over the years. Heaven has gained a gentle soul and the world has lost a good, honest, kind, hard working man. I'm sure Steve will show him the around!
Rest in Peace, Semper Fi.
We love you both -
