Rob used to joke with me about how big our family has gotten at the family picnics. I’d ask

Rob will be missed. He was a great person, co-worker, and friend.

What struck me most about Rob was he always calm and respectful, no matter how things were going. He did not demand anything from anyone, his manner was all about working with others to get things done. People understood that if he asked for something, they did it, not because he was their boss but out of respect for the man.

My thoughts go out to family and friends in these difficult times.

Beth, we are so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of your beloved husband. Dave and I had such a great conversation with Rob this summer in Mark and Margaret’s backyard with lots of laughs. Our deepest condolences to you and your boys at this most difficult time, may the many wonderful years and memories you have give you strength in the coming weeks ahead. With loving thoughts and prayers Beth xo
Kathy and David Comeau
