He was a proud electrician for IBEW Local 3, who worked at the WTC, as assigned. His signature was the broad smile he wore. His sense of humor appealed to everyone. Rob looked at life to be cherished and enjoyed. The most amusing quality he possessed was his attention to doing everything in an orderly fashion and planning his "fun" days carefully, to ensure everyone would remember all the laughs shared. He performed at work with meticulous concern for each job being done "perfectly." Rob always offered his electrical skill to his friends when they needed a repair or advice. He loved his work. Rob's friends are numerous and miss him terribly. A scholarship fund has been started at the Central High School, Valley Stream, New York, to award students studying electricity, plumbing or construction. He was proud of Valley Stream families, as he knew most of them. It's been said, "you'd think he was the mayor, the way he stops to talk to everyone." Always with a smile and a kind word and anecdote to cheer their day. Your life was your thank-you gift to God.
