Condolence: To Susan and family

It's with a heavy heart that Denise and I offer our sincere condolences. I have met very few genuine people in my life, and Rob was definitely one. When I spoke to him a few years ago in a room full of people-- it was just him and I talking track and it was great! Gone too soon. RIP #39

Condolence: Dear Susan and Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincerest condolences. I was shocked when I heard the terrible news.

I first met Rob at Westgate in the 73/74 school year. He was in Grade 13 (I think) and a dominant force on the Track Team. I was in my first year teaching, coaching Track. Thankfully, he was patient with me.

Whenever we would see each other in the community thereafter, he always had a huge, beaming smile making me feel that he was as happy to see me as I was to see him.

Sadly, this is one of those events in life in which the futility of language is never more pronounced. There are only feelings. Please know that the feelings of my family and I are with you always.

Condolence: I would like to express my deepest condolences on the sudden passing of Rob, a dear husband, father and grandfather. Although I knew Rob briefly from Thrive, he was an inspiration. His level of fitness was something I could only hope for. I've recently developed a passion for cycling and it was amazing to see him arrive in his cycling best no matter how cold it was outside, to hear him explain the distances he traveled, always with a smile. He will be missed and our prayers are with you.

Condolence: Annette and I have struggled this past week with finding the right words to say . The initial shock of Rob's passing has left us both sad and empty inside. We spent time reflecting on the wonderful memories we have of Rob, Susan and "the kids " . Time spent together on Moodie St. Grand Marais..
hockey rinks and baseball diamonds leave us with happy memories but terribly sad at the same time. Rob was a wonderful man ... happy and always full of life . He was a great friend .. someone you could count on .. .. ..someone always ready to help. He will be sorely missed by all of us in the Hauta family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Susan and the family in this incredibly difficult time.

Condolence: Dear Susan and Family,

I was very saddened to hear of Rob’s sudden passing; please accept my heartfelt condolences. I hold fond memories of playing high school football with Rob at Westgate. He was an outstanding athlete, but moreover, a "rock solid" teammate and an inspirational leader, who delivered championships. There's no doubt that these special qualities, along with his good-hearted spirit, served him well throughout his life and I will always remember him in this light. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Peter
