What a great legacy he has left. Many fond memories of times I spent with Rob in our formative years at St. Joe in the class of ‘74, Cross Country races and as Altar Boys at St. Anthony. Good times stopping at the Spectacle Shop on my way home from school and BB Gun antics in the woods behind his home. RIP my friend. Thoughts and prayers to the family as you celebrate the treasures of his life!
