Linda, I am so sorry to hear the news. Rob was a great guy and a great father. I know you all will miss him terribly.
it is with great fondness I remember Robert. BCk in the old Commonwealth Club days. He was a consummate professional with a great sense of humor. I’m so grateful I had any time with him. Sending the family all my love.
Reading this today was such a shock! I have great memories of Robert and myself working side by side at the Commonwealth Club.
He was extremely talented, dedicated to his job and we shared a lot of laughter while working long hours.
