Goodbye Robert. Over a decade ago I was part of a group of young Irish people that traveled to Montreal for work experience. You were my host. I will never forget your warmth, wit and patience . The world is a lesser place now that you are gone. Go ndéana Dia trócaire ar a anam. Tadhg.

To Robert's dear family members,
J'ai rencontré Robert à de nombreuses rencontres d'affaires et ai toujours été impressionné par son accueil chaleureux et amical. J'ai eu la chance de le rencontrer à cette magnifique soirée du 23 juillet dernier organisée par Vern McCreary. Il s'empressait toujours de me parler en français. Sa présence va me manquer.
Avec mes plus sincères condoléances,
