He will be greatly missed by his family, friends and work colleagues – a fun-loving and caring person, respected, loyal and very much loved by us all.

He was a loving husband to Gwen and an amazing father to his two children and will remain forever in their hearts.

Rob was a loyal and loving son to Alan and Ann and a fantastic, caring brother to his younger sister Janet who always looked up to him.

Rob will be a great loss to our family.
