Rob sure was a character and a great person to be around. He will be missed by all. I found a few pics to share over the 3 years I knew him. May he rest in peace.

I had much respect for his free spirit. I really don’t know how to digest this, but you will be dearly missed my friend.
I remember him saying something like if you are a rider, you are my friend, if you ride with me, you are my family, and he meant it!
Will miss you bro! This is really hard to come in terms with……

Loosing Rob is surreal and hard to really wrap my head around.

Thank you Rob for being such a good friend over the years and always the positive guy that you are. I remember that you used to always say that ridding motorcycles was like getting the BMX gang back together, just with real motors. I always felt that way when I rode with you. You made ridding fun, with all your crazy shit like throwing the horns, holding up traffic on burnside to let a 100 bikes through, and hanging your sun burnt ass crack out of the back of your jeans. Thank you for having that kindred hooligan spirit.

I am honored to have been part of Rob's last ride. I will always think of you when I'm out on those roads. I miss you my friend.

Rob was the first person from pnw I rode with. He was always a stand up guy.

I read through the first two pages of this thread waiting for the joke. Then it wasn't funny anymore.
How can this be? How can something so unthinkable have happened? Go swiftly Rob.

Fun in 2009 on a fine sunny day just begging for some squidding around.

Rob was one of the first guys i met on my first day of joining PNWR. I thought i would feel like the new boyfriend at a wedding. Out of place and ignored, left out of photos as if not to belong, and soon forgotten. But Rob instantly treated me as a friend, comrade, and brother.I WILL NOT forget that. He was one badass, metal, sweetheart of a man and will always be missed.

I beg everybody to show up on Tuesday, to show with a black band on their bike, and to have at least $1 for a continuing charity pot for his wife. We owe it to such a great man, pillar of our community, as well as to Shannon (for it is her loss more than ours). R.I.P. Rob, we ride your honor, and you will have a procession to rival the hells angels! i know you will see it and smile.

Really sorry to hear of the loss of Black Sabbatical. I had never met him, but always liked looking at his threads for posted rides. RIP brother.

As a few have mentioned before; what he had for his signature is what i believe was reflected in his attitude
