Thanks so very much for being the messenger.  Echoing the words of others, my spin is the remembrance of a really good man, a team builder, and the glue the helped keep us together.    Rob quietly contributed to the Federation in ways that were beyond his immediate interests:  The interests of all of us.  I always saw him as the person who took care of people, took care needs of the Federation, was fair, level headed, and mentoring... a true leader.

He will always be a really good man.

By deepest condolences to Rob's family and close friends during this very sad time.  Steve

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.
