Rob left his earthly home on Saturday, February 16th at age 54 after a long hard battle with Pancreatic Cancer to ascend and re-spawn in heaven to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
In his life he made many friends thru working as a mechanic and dump truck driver for more than 35 years. He made many friends thru his online gaming world as “PoppaXSmurff” and cherished every one of his friends.
Those who knew him quickly would realize he was always true to his word and a very honest person about his perspective in life.
He never had idle hands he was always building something or fixing something he kept his hands busy all the time.
He loved to have fun and joke around with people and could always make anyone having a bad day smile. He would never intentionally hurt anyone and if he did he would quickly right his wrong.
His love for God and his family was truly remarkable and unshakable. He loved with all of his heart and his family and friends could always count on him to be there for them.
He was a devoted, loving and faithful husband and as a father he was always stern, steadfast and always fair with so much love for his children and grandchildren. He would have protected them with his life.
A celebration of his life will be announced in the near future.
In lieu of flowers the family request donations to Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in his honor or to his GofundMe (www.gofundme.com/4a36-rob039s-pancreatic-cancer-journey) page to assist his family.
