The world has lost a gentle, kind, thoughtful man. He and my husband, Don spent many years patrolling the mountain. Rob and Ryan were so kind to visit my husband when he was ill. I have great memories from years ago after Easter services at the top of the hill, going to the bottom on his sled with Ryan, Raina, Rorie, and me at the back. What a strong man. Please accept our prayers for your family.

I didn't know Rob but ...wow...I read his story in this guest book! He certainly left a powerful legacy, not only on the land of Alaska, but the many people who knew him....My thoughts and prayers are for those who knew him and will miss him so much...especially Rorie, my friend from long ago.

Our prayers and condolences are with your family during this very tough time. Never met Rob but he sounds like he was a great man, husband and father. Sincerely Tom and Marcie Ferron

As I am currently out of state I cannot attend the memorial, but wish to pass on to Rob's family how much his compassion meant to me. We often spoke of my own father (whom Rob had known and had passed in an accident) and Rob always made me feel good, not worse, during these conversations. The last time I saw Rob was when he bought some furniture we were selling last Spring, we ended up chatting awhile and you could see the joy in his eyes when he spoke of family - especially you kids :)
You are missed and loved, Rob.

Rorie, Raina & Ryan
What a devistating loss to all that cherished him and his unwaining helping of others and that which his life was dedicated to. We at DOT will miss such an awe inspiring man and his loss will leave a whole in our hearts and the huge loss to the community. I truly hope that your hearts are being conforted by all the grand jestures and memories of this awesome man that gave himself to others unconditionally.
I am praying these memories will help comfort you in your time of grieving and thinking of him will energize you in this trying time.

Dear Rorie and family, I didn't know Rob personally but the fact that he was helping someone in need is testament of his character. I'm thinking about you and you're in my prayers.May you find comfort in your memories and strength in prayer.

One thing I'll miss will be Rob's stories about Denali. He had many amazing experiences in his life.

Fond memories of the ever-smiling Rob joining his family at Camp Denali during his free time. I'll never forget watching him play basketball in barefeet with Tim and Land in the gravel behind the Woodshed Restroom. One tough Alaskan! And sometimes even in the pouring rain after staff lunch. My heart joins the family in their grief and loss. My prayers are with you all. May God's presence and love surround you and hold you close.

What a great tribute, but it only skims the surface of a life well lived. My sympathy and love to Rorie, Raina and Ryan. Rorie- see you in July if not sooner. Love you -- Kitty
