I’d like to offer my deepest condolences to Rob’s family. I don’t know any of you, but he spoke of you all often and loved you! May the Lord bless you with His peace and comfort the way that only He can.

I had the pleasure of working with & getting to know ‘Cowboy’ as we called him while working in the Shipping Dept. at Aleris. He was a regular, twice a day usually. He was a great guy! Always enjoyed swapping stories with him … Never a dull moment! It was good to have a fellow biker around to shoot the breeze with. Even after leaving the Shipping Dept. I could always count on him to stop & chat with me in the morning on the way in. You all are in my prayers & may God bless you all!

My condolences and sympathy to Robert's family. I really did not know him very well, but we did attend Black River High School together. I graduated with Nelda. Blessings upon you and yours as you face the upcoming days, months and years.
