Long High School and Central, WA, University. Rob was employed at Emerald Kalama Chemical. He married his high school sweetheart, Tami, in 1987. She survives him at home.

Rob was a devoted man of God, taken from us too soon. He loved spending time with his family and adored his grandchildren. Seemingly a quiet guy, he was always quick to joke and make you smile. He had a passion for all things motorcycles, seriously!
A memorial service will take place at 11:00 a.m. Friday, May 10, at Columbia Heights Assembly of God. Memorial donations may be made at Fibre Federal Credit Union.
