I was so sorry to hear of Rob's passing and I am sorry I wasn't able to be at his memorial. I met Rob the first time when Diane introduced him as her "new" man. He was charming and way too funny and could see this was a match! Over the years, I did some business with Rob and in the process, learned what was wrong with my "swing" although he never let me "drive" one into the ocean off his lawn....that was reserved for him! Later on, it was fun to see Rob become a child again with the birth of Cole and Kyle....he adored them! His fun and easy style will be missed.

Robbie had big dreams and a big heart way back in Junior High when I knew him and he was lucky enough to live those dreams. Everyone who was fortunate enough to know him and share in his world can hold onto treasured memories forever. My heart goes out to his familly and friends.

I grew up with, and went to school as great freinds with "Alex", my only regret was not having seen him in recent years. Please accept my sympathy for the entire family. Greg Jubb

I first met Rob when I was thirteen, at Woodman Junior High. Over the years I would run into him in Vancouver on at a golf course somewhere. He always struck me as the epitome of the "Renaissance Man", the one who sought to get the most out of life and succeed in everything that he did. My sincere best thoughts to his family and a special mention to RKA

"Alex" was a good friend. Growing up together from grade 2 we shared many adventures. He was a natural athlete, bright and intelligent. He had a deep love for his wife and kids. He made friends easily friends and always had a good tale to tell. On behalf of myself and my family I want to extend my deepest sympathies to Diane, his sons and his family.

Robbie was always so quick with a smile which added a glint to his wonderful blue eyes. He was so gracious and fun. We were all so lucky to have know him.

Linda and I were very sorry to hear of Alex's passing (he was Alex way back in our teenage years). Rob and I met when we were 14..I remember him boiling up some frozen peas for a snack for us..even then he loved to cook. He had a great sense of humour and was good at anything athletic.
Our deepest sympathy to Diane, his boys and entire family.

I love you Uncle Robbie. I remember the countless family gatherings we have spent together staying up late talking about subjects as diverse as animals and natural selection, light and its behavior as a wave and as a particle, meditation and meditation master Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj, what I want to be when I grow up, Buddhism, definition of nocturnal at age 6, boys and relationships, juicing, the meaning of life, life after death and the various planes of existence etc. I love the time we got to spend together, and look forward to the time we will get to spend in the future. See you in Sach Khand Robbie!

We are very sorry to hear about "Robbie"
My husband and I went all through junior high and high school with him in Calgary and have great memories of him. He was such a kind and fun loving guy and we had so much fun with him and all our friends. He will be missed.
Our hearts go out to his wife Diane and two sons.

Only Robbie could show up for golf in his pajamas and a straw hat and shoot a 66. The way he embraced life and his friendships was inspiring and contagious. We have missed him of late and always will.

Rob was a fighter , saw it first hand , he didnt ever lose hope. He adored his family and would have given anything to be able to watch his kids grow up, they meant the world to him. He didnt lose his sense of humor , even in the last few weeks of his life, that was apparent in the hospital the way he joked around with us and the doctors. Rob taught Monty and myself to cook a new dish just 4 weeks ago in his and Dianes kitchen , he loved to cook he said , and it showed . We plan on making that same dish of payella here at our home , and we will always think of Rob , everytime we make it and wish he could be there to share in both the cooking of the dish and the tasting of the dish.. Fly Rob Fly!!!
