    To Rob’s family, father, Ben and Robbie, Jim, Barb and Cathy, It has been many things to know Rob, an honor is the first word that comes to mind. He was always so open with whatever was on this mind, this could make the conversation, funny, fact searching, frustrating, soulful, or just quiet. He was a true human being, not afraid to show his strengths, his weaknesses, his frustrations, but it was his humor, his joy of life especially the wonders of Creation and all his friends who shared this, his self depreciating humor (the Rodney Dangerfield of engineering). Rob’s love of engineering and the frustration with its processes of demands, half facts, personalities, because being in an engineering company, this was many times the starting point of our conversations which could go anywhere before our discussion was done. Even in sickness and anguish, he was always there for others, to listen, to share with them. Once you met him, you always remembered him, he was unique, a true character and a very intelligent person. As I have told others of his illness, they all are saddened as they hear the news and they immediately remember him. We pray for Rob’s family, we remember Rob in so many ways, perhaps that is the best eulogy, that Rob remains on our minds, some one to greatly miss, someone to cherish, someone to emulate and someone we look forward to seeing when we to leave this earth and go the arms of Jesus Christ. Sincerely, Rick and Betty Skaflen
