Rob lived for his girls and enjoyed spending time with friends and family, especially if it involved the checking out shopping centers (not shopping). He was also a big fan of the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Mariners and loved attending the games with friends and family. Rob was known for his sense of humor and kind heartedness and will truly be missed by many…
