Thank you, Ed, for sharing this. I met Rob years ago when we were both 
graduate students at Michigan, and was delighted when our paths crossed 
again through ESIP. I was looking forward to working with him, and am 
deeply saddened by his passing. Please pass my condolences onto his

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 

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