The main love of Rob’s life was his family. He was blessed with a loving and devoted wife, two loving daughters and four loving grandchildren. He shared a special bond with his sister, Ann, and his brother, Tony. He had many longtime friends with whom he enjoyed spending dinners and vacations. Rob was a great father and grandfather, always supportive and protective. He had a kind, gentle soul and there was nothing he would not have done for his family.
