I had the pleasure of meeting him at the last RVMAC in Durango, CO. Unfortunately, he will not be at the next RMVAC.

We stayed with Rob courtesy parking last July. He lived in a beautiful place, and he shared it with anyone who came to see it. Even though we were only with him a couple of days, it was filled with conversation about and drives through his special place. Not only that, his interest in architecture, interior design, and aviation filled our time there He was a valued member of the 4CU and I know all who knew him, even casually, will miss him.

We always appreciated Rob's thoughtful responses to other AirForums members' posts. His comments and input will be missed.

Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his close friends...

I never met him in person, but as all others have said, I feel we've all lost a friend. As for having no family - we'll maybe the DNA is different but the spirit was not.

Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

What a wealth of information he provided. A loss to all of us who profited by his input.

My thoughts are with those of the 4CU that knew Rob personally and to all those he helped and communed with here on Air Forums.

I will offer up this traditional Irish prayer which I always find to be a fitting send off

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

We were planning to travel through ID on Highway 12. Contacted Rob about the route and he insisted we plan to stop and stay on his property. Plans changed and we didn't make it up that way, but he seemed like a really nice guy, inviting strangers to come stay with him. Sorry we never got to meet.

He will be missed here, he was without question one of the most constructive and valuable members of this community. My deep sympathy to those who knew him personally.

This is sad news. He was the first member to reply to my first post in the forum about 4 years ago. Always a great contributor. May he rest in peace.
