Wednesday, March 20, 2019I remember Bob as always smiling no matter what was going on. He was fun to be around. Sad to hear of his passing as we shared times from Middle School through High School in Allen Park, Michigan! I trust he will look down and watch over all of us. Rest in peace my friend!

Tuesday, March 19, 2019Bob and I met in sixth grade and quickly became good friends. We spent a lot of time together in next few years trying to figure out how to get girls to like us, talking about which cars we wanted to drive, listening to a lot of music and maybe occasionally having an adult beverage before we were 21. I am so glad that Steve, Tim and I got to spend one more weekend with Bob. You are already missed greatly, RIP old friend. Pete

Monday, March 18, 2019Robert, I'll always treasure the memories of us as kids at the lake with you, Jeffrey and Sheila along with all the Curry family. You can unfurl your wings and fly free now. Free of cancer and pain. RIP cousin. Love, Denise

Sunday, March 17, 2019Rob trained me on 3rd shift at Duke and I have great memories of his kindness and patience. I also was able to work with him a few times when Clarence was on vacation. You learned a lot about the hospital working with him. He was tireless and full of knowledge. As said previously, he was very calm no matter what was going on.... even if it was me talking jiberish because I was hitting the wall at 5am. I had great fun joking and laughing with him and Clarence when I came in on first shift as we have a 30 min over lap. Rob and I are about the same age so we had very similar tastes in music, so it was nice to get my day started working behind both of them. I will miss him. He was a ray of sunshine for me on my work days.

Saturday, March 16, 2019The only thing I liked about being called in to work 3rd shift was talking with the technicians and Robert was no exception. I always admire his suave and calm personality. No matter how busy we got, he kept the same composure. He would always answer any question I had, he had a wealth off knowledge and was always willing to share it. Now as a military person myself I will truly miss him as a fighter and a technician. To the family be bless and know that God is with you.
