Rob lived his life in pursuit of laughter. He would try to make people happy with jokes or playful humour. He would always find many jokes that he would share with his many friends on Facebook. His laugh was infectious and no matter the situation it could lift the room up. He will be truly missed by everyone who met him.
Rest in peace Rob, you have earned the right to soar the heavens and enjoy life as you choose.
Thank you to all the nurses and staff at the Southwood Hospice for taking good care of Rob and the family during this hard time.
