Dear Lisa and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I always liked working with Rob, he was so knowledgeable. Rob usually audited cities and I did counties, so there were lots of time we all went out to lunch. Usually he was very quiet, so when he said something we all listened. I think we all liked telling a story and getting him to laugh. All the officials respected him. I believe I was in the office when we got new positions of Auditor-in-Charge. The board told us when we got them that one was reserved for Rob.

Since I've been retired my contact was mostly limited to facebook. I always enjoyed reading his posts about the family. Rob really enjoyed being a Husband, Dad and Grandfather and he was so proud of you all, it showed in all his posts.

He was a "gentle-man" who will be missed.
