Dear All:

Rest his soul. He was a gentle human being.

I propose we start a scholarship in his name sponsored by the ESIP, the organization that he loved so much and did so much for. I can't speak for JPL but I am sure ideas will come up there too.

HI folks,

Its me again. With some unfortunate news ......

Rob passed away at around 8 pm Pacific Time.  I was not there but his sister and a few friends were nearby.  He passed on peacefully with little or no suffering.

Lisa wants everyone to know she really appreciates their heartfelt support, prayers and thoughts.  The get well cards some of you signed were read to Rob in the last 24 hours as were other messages such as emails and FB posts over the last days. We really really appreciate the support.

I will be offline over the weekend.  I will send another update Monday sometime.

Rest easy tonight, Rob. You will be missed. Peace and blessings.
