He was an honorably discharged veteran, as well as a dedicated employee of the state of Maryland at MCI, in Hagerstown, Md., for more than ten years.

Rob was a cherished father, brother, boyfriend, and friend. You knew he enjoyed you in his life when he was picking on you or planning the next group outing!

When he wasn’t out on the greens with friends or making something on the grill at the campsite, then he was usually tasting wine, critiquing beer, beating someone in a game of cards, or enjoying one of his many hobbies.

His laugh will forever be heard, and his love will never fade.
