Not sure what to say?

Always the tease, 5 yr old Robert was bugging 2 yr old Christine about eating her corn on the cob! Miss you, love you brother.

Thanks to Jerry Szal for the wonderful “best friends” story of his early years growing up with Rob. As the older brother with “better things” to focus on back then than a much younger brother in a houseful of kids, I got another nice view into Rob’s early life.
Love you Rob. RIP.

About Rob and me

For those among you that were lucky enough to have a best friend while young, you might be able to recall a parallel in your life similar to the friendship I had with Rob when we were kids. I had one really good friend, a best friend, and it was Robert Kelly. While I did stuff with other kids when I was young I was always, somehow more comfortable and able to be just myself when I was with Rob.

When the Kellys lived on Arbor Drive, Rob and I used to do...

My sincere condolences to the family on your loss.

God bless you all,

What a privilege and delight to know and work with Rob at Scottsdale Osborn. He was a shining light in the OR and as smart and capable as they come. God bless him and his family.

I miss you Rob.
Love,
brother Dave

I was shocked and saddened to have heard about Rob's passing. We grew up together in Ho-Ho-Kus and were classmates at St.Luke's Grammar and St. Joseph's Regional High School. We stayed in touch during college and after I moved to CA, spending time backpacking and just plain hanging out together. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family.

Sorry you had to go Robbie. Our family won't be the same without you. I'll miss your goofiness & wacky questions. No more Monty Python jokes - well, maybe that's a blessing! You can relax & chill out now. Give Mom & Dad a hug for me.
Love you Rabbit!
