Rob, I just read of your passing. I remember you and your uniqueness. You saw and expressed, in a quip, the humor in the dramatic. This is a tribute to you from your Skyline class of '73.

I miss Rob a lot and Trudy was a sweetheart - I'm not so sure I should repeat her favorite words - she used them to describe everyone and everything.

Rob was on life support for about 1 month after the accident.  He was killed on impact and "revived" by paramedics and put on life support.  It was strange to watch his wounds heal from the accident.  He got his hair cut while in the hospital and was clean shaven every other day but never woke up.  It was a difficult time.

Did you know Rob was two years younger than us??  He skipped two grades.

He was on The Art Linkletter Show too - Kids Say The Darndest Things.........

Rob new every team, every player, he knew the stats of every ball player that ever played in the World Series - including the line-up of every team.

Remember his Volkswagen Thing??

Rob - you're awesome and dearly missed. broken heart

Rob and Trudy were great friends - I miss them both.
