My sincere condolences, thoughts, and prayers to the family and friends of Rob. Although I was the teacher, Rob taught ME so much about understanding, appreciating, and how to differentiate for students. His needs as a student led me to explore further how to best educate very bright students. He touched me as a teacher and as a human being in deep, deep ways. Memories of him are woven into my very heart and soul as a teacher. A tremendous person.

I always knew Rob would do great things with his life and it looks like he did! Such a smart caring guy in school. I hate hearing that the class of 1994 is losing classmates. So young and so much life yet to live. I played tennis with Rob and his Mom was my coach....such fond memories of them both. Deepest sympathys to his family. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers!

Bob and Elizabeth,
We were so terribly sorry to hear of Rob's passing. We remember all of the hours that Rob spent at our house on Cherry Street with Ben, Zac, Terence, Kevin, Josh, and sometimes Clint, and Sean. Rob had such a funny, wry sense of humor and he was always thanking us for letting the group meet at our house for lunch during high school. We remember the "group" getting together for marathon sessions of board games and food in our basement. What great times they had! And, what fun we had hosting this wonderful group of smart, good-natured, talented, young men. Rob was a great friend to Ben and was always wonderful to Phil. Our hearts are heavy for you and your loss. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you. Rob and Judy Coleman
