I worked with Rob at Ecolab in San Antonio, Texas. We were more than coworkers...We were good friends!. Sometimes he could have that grumpy old man personality, occasionally he took it to the golf course, when he did I took it upon my self to get him to laugh and smile when we were together. We shared common interests. We both owned classic cars and loved Mexican food. We would meet up for lunch and we'd talk about work, faith, and family. Our last couple of lunches before he headed to Ohio we spoke frequently about religion. He had questions, and I would answer the best I could. After our last lunch I gave him a big hug thinking it could be the last time I would ever see him. It was still a great shock to get the news. Judy, you and your family have my condolences, you and Rob will be in my prayers.
