    Well I would like to start by offering my deepest condolences to sister Candice. I am so so sorry to hear about this loss. I cannot even imagine the pain you must be feeling right now. I pray that God will continue to send angels of both peace and comfort to be at your side at all times of the day and night.

    Secondly I would like to talk about how much of an impact brother Rob had on me during the time that he attended New Hope. Bro Rob was a genuine inspiration to me. When he attended New Hope I was always genuinely happy to see him. He had such a kind and gentle energy that made it easy to not only talk to him but to just be around him. The way that he supported and took part of the kids ministry was always a joy to watch as well. He had the same passion to teach kids as his wife and if you know his wife, then you know that is quite the feat. Rob will be missed greatly by me and everyone that had the honor to be around him. I look forward to the day when I will see him again in heaven and we will both hear “well done my good and faithful servant”.


  10. Robert was the funniest man I knew. Grateful for all his support during our wedding and how much he supported my husband. He arrived early to our wedding and stayed right by my husband’s side the entire time for moral support friendship and fellowship. That meant so much to us both. Love ya Robert you will be so very missed!


  11. I remember driving in his mom’s station wagon to Bethany. Great sense of humor n an infectious laugh! Memory eternal

    I know Rob is standing in the glorious presence of the Lord. May God comfort his wife, family & friends during this time of earthly loss. But in Christ, we will meet again!❤️❤️❤️


  14. Rob I enjoyed the time we worked together at Home Depot and every day no matter what was going on you made me laugh. I’m gonna miss you my friend, but now you are with God Almighty and you can make everyone in Heaven laugh. See you when I get there my friend. Rest in peace!!


  15. Rob was a cherished staff member at Angelina’s Pizza in Olmsted Falls many years ago. I think of his calm spirit often. You are missed, Rob.
