What a man! I am disappointed that I didn't know him. However, knowing his family seems to be close to knowing him. Beautifully written obituary, Jenness. Your family is in our prayers.

The world lost two great pianists this week, both Texans namely Van Cliburn and Bob Rouse! I'll never forget his and Elta's support of me and my dream of becoming a professional singer. Music was such a great part of his life and my favorite memories of him center around listening to his booming baritone voice filling his house as he accompanied himself on the piano. Godspeed Brother Rouse. The Heavenly Choir just gained a beautiful singing soul.

I had the privilege of working with Dr. Rouse in the Department of Economics in the 70's. Even though I was just a student assistant, he made me feel special and valued. Blessings to his family at this time.

Dr. Rouse was my favorite Professor at Texas Tech. If he taught it. I took it. He was also a great personal friend and mentor.

I loved listening to Dr. Rouse's stories over coffee at Market Street. He loved learning and teaching, but he loved his beatiful wife and family the most. He was one of the most intelligent persons I have ever known.

Bob was a good man and will be greatly missed. I always enjoyed listening to him speak of the many places which he visited. He had so much knowledge. God Bless to the family.

Dr Rouse was great Christian example. As a professor he never exhibited anything but integrity and effective principles that could/should be used in the professional world! I'm sure his influence will be felt for years.

We are so sorry to learn of Bob's death!! We have great memories of the welcome you two extended us when we moved to TTU 43 years ago.
We extend our love and prayers to you in this time of sorrow. May your deep faith and the love of family and friends sustain you in your grief.

Dr. Rouse was one of those special influences on a young person's life that I never forgot. I was very lucky to have had classes from him as a student at Texas Tech and will remember
forever. God bless his family.

Dr. Rouse was my introduction to economics, something which I have continued to use frequently. May all who knew him take comfort in the fact that he lived a full life well and died well still enjoying life.

Robert helped us so much as a volunteer Treasurer at Family Counseling Services for a really long time. We appreciated his expertise. He is truly missed. James Johnston
