    Rob was full of life and was a tremendously talented man. He was a true wood artisan and musician, and was loved by so many Springfielders . As neighbors, we spent many nights eating oysters over backyard fires, listening to Rob play the guitar, laughing, and enjoying the company of great friends. Those memories will always be etched in my mind. My sincere condolences to Susan and both families. Rob will be greatly missed.

    I can’t believe that the Lord needed him at such a vibrant age. I was on Rob’s flight crew in the Navy. Stationed in Hawaii. We rode motorcycles together when we weren’t chasing Russian submarines in the Pacific. I flew many times with Rob and Earl McKinley. God rest his beautiful soul.
