This was from our KGL golf league outing a few years ago. Rob was always a competitor in whatever he did. Rob will definitely be missed by all his KGL golf league members. Many a good time on the course with Rob and his golf partner Brad Beney. Condolences to the family.

I knew Rob while at IU. He was the football hero down the hall in my dorm. Probably a good thing there was football practice to channel and burn all his excess energy! I fondly recall freezing with some dorm mates atop Riverfront Stadium to watch the Jets (Namath at QB -- yes, THAT long ago!) take on the Bengals. Sorry I lost track of him over the years, and am saddened by news of his passing. He was very affable and I'm confident he left his family with many fine memories of this fine man.

I grew up a couple of blocks away from Rob. The Redford Parks & Rec. Department would open the elementary school gyms in the Summer for the local kids. Mr. Munson, Thurston's physics teacher, ran the program at Ashcroft Elementary School for years. At least a couple of times a week Mr. Munson would let us play dodgeball. One (1) red ball. Rob would be on one (1) side and my Brother Bob on the other. Bob won the softball throw for the City of Detroit several years running at the Physical Fitness Days. The small gym with the glazed block walls. They were normally the last two (2) standing. Whomever had the ball last was going to win because no one was going to catch what they were throwing. I can still hear the ball bouncing off those walls.
