We are so sorry to see that Rob has passed. He was such a great guy, never hurt anyone would always give a helping hand if needed. We moved away from Parry Sound twenty some years ago but whenever I saw Rob when in town we would talk like we just restarted a conversation from yesterday. He was a neighbourhood friend while growing up plus plus a good aquaintenance in our teen years. He will be missed by many and our sincerest condolences to the family. Gary Kennedy

Joanne, I'm not sure how to put into words the heartbreak I feel on your behalf. I can't imagine how difficult this is for you, but I know the love you and Rob shared will strengthen you through the seasons of grief. That love will never fade or end. Allison and Bobby, I'm so sorry for the loss of your dear dad. He was such a character. I remember our trips to "The Country", "The Cottage", and Darian Lake fondly. Not to mention the countless evenings at your house after school. Your dad was always a pleasure to be around and anyone who knew him felt his love. Sending my love to you all.

Since we heard of Rob’s passing we have been trying to imagine the world without him. At first we said we couldn’t. Then we realized we could. It is a lot duller, nowhere near as funny and full of laughter, the sun just doesn’t seem as bright, and it is a lot less kind and loving. We will miss you friend. There was no one better, kinder, just all round as nice as you. Our hearts ache. Jo, Ally and Bobby we are thinking of you all and how much Rob loved and was proud of each of you. He will be missed.
Bev and Kevin

I am so very sorry and extend my deepest sympathy to Rob's family. I felt fortunate to know both Rob and his father as being not just good men but what all people should aspire to be respectful, honest, caring about their community and those around them not just good men but what makes us all better.

Shocked to hear about this sad news, I'm stuck for words!! I've known him and his family for many years as we lived just a few houses down the street on Isabella.

-Doug Gibson

Sincere condolences to all of Rob's family during this difficult time. Rob was a first class gentleman, always friendly and supportive, especially to the less fortunate. To me he was the face of Canadian Tire, the go to guy if you needed any assistance. His support of Helping Kids Play and later JumpStart assisted was very much appreciated by 100's of children who were outfitted with equipment for a sport of their choosing . He brought smiles to many young faces. Rest well my friend, I will always cherish our friendship.
