The Slackers football team was a very important part of his life for over 30 years as both a player and coach.

I knew Rob when I was on the Gatineau, he was a funny, genuine, good person! I always enjoyed talking with him and having a few cold ones. He was easy going and fun to be around, a great loss! My thoughts are with the family
