Our hearts go out to all of you. Jason and I cannot believe Rob has passed. We both spoke to Rob just last week. We will miss him for sure. It has been different not seeing the garage up with the warmer weather. Rob always said hello coming or going, asked how we were doing or just commented on the weather. He was a great guy and will be remembered. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. Sending hugs of strength your way.
With Love, Jason and Dana Tetley

Julie, Jack, and Max: I am so sorry for your loss. I want you to know that I am here for you should you ever need anything. Rob was such a great friend to me. In fact, he is one of my all time favorite people. He always made me smile. He always took the time to talk to me, text me, and share funny videos or pictures with me. He and I were often the last ones left at the poker table just shoving our chips back and forth and simply hanging out. He was just a lot of fun and always made me feel good. I know that he had this same impact on so many others as well. I hope the good memories that are shared will bring you some comfort in this difficult time. I loved that guy! God bless you all!
