  2. We are so sorry for the loss of your son. We truly understand the heartache you are going through and we are sending our thoughts and prayers to you. We hope memories can help you through this sorrowful time.

  3. We are so sorry for the loss of your son, Rob. We truly understand the heartache and tears you are suffering. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of sorrow, Ron and Darlene. You are not just parents of a child–you are parents of a child with wings.

  4. My deepest condolences go out to Rob’s entire family and friends. He was a great guy and there was a certain something about how he carried himself that just put you at ease. And boy, did he have determination and grit! We would often workout at around the same time and like myself, he meant business when he stepped into the gym. We use to work out side-by-side in a tucked away corner of the gym and razz each other every Friday evening. One of a kind. You will be missed.

  5. Ron, Darlene, Ryan, Amber, and little ones
    We are so very sorry for your loss. I wish there were words to make this easier, I just hope all your wonderful memories will help you through this time

  6. Rob was my favorite member to see at our health club. He was always kind and sweet and his smile was pure and beautiful. It would light up your heart when ever he was near. I am so sorry for the loss of this wonderful man. I only wish I had gotten to know him even more. He will be deeply missed by so many. Love, light and prayers to his family and all those who had the privilege of knowing him. Until we meet again one day…..

  7. My memories of Rob surround cross country. He was always listening to the “Cake” song “The distance” “singing” along or more like chanting with the music to get pumped for the races. A great runner and a good guy. Can’t believe he’s gone. My heart is broken for all of his family and close friends. Continued prayers for all.

  8. Dave and I considered Rob one of the finest people on earth. Not only was he kind, considerate and fun-loving with people his age but he crossed the generations, making him loved by everyone who knew him. He will be missed a lot by those countless people whose lives he touched. Our love goes out to Ron, Darlene, Ryan, Amber and families.
