My condolences to the family. I first met Rob in public school. Then meet him again at CEP. I have a lot of respect for his contribution to Trade Unionism. He will be missed by many.

Rob's was the first face of the Lions club I met when I became involved a few years ago. He was always friendly and pleasant in our exchanges, and I extend my deepest sympathy to the family on this very sad loss.
