wow ... very sad indeed ... he's been around for many years ... contributed in many ways to vbulletinorg ... he was even a moderator at one point ... I just hope he didn't suffer for long ... Rest in peace, Rob!

Wow, I used to talk to him back in the day.. So sad to hear this news, he was very helpful to me.

I remember bearfacts and some of the ideas he gave me for an old site I ran (Alien Soup). He gave me additional access to some code without so much as a word. His humor was memorable, and I'll always miss him.

Wow, I am very saddened to hear this. I have know Rob for some time here on the org, only talked in post or a pm or two when I needed to pick his brain. He would without hesitation help me with whatever I needed help with.
During part of May and the first day of June, this year, we talked just about everyday on Trillian. (He insisted I get it & use it, he said I would like it & he was right.) We talked about everything, his kids, his movie collection and vbulletin. I told him he was going to go broke buying movies.

I really enjoyed chatting with Rob on trillian & will miss it dearly... even if I had to get my decoder pen out to understand his text at times.

R.I.P Rob, you will be missed.

Rob, I'm typing through tears here, we never met but after all the messages and crazy jokes we swapped I was blessed with getting to know a truly amazing guy.

You always put others first and cared so much about people and all that happened to them yet you kept so many of your own problems private.
It seems like only a couple of months ago you were joshing me about not answering messages quickly enough and complaining I had not visited your forum for a while.
When I told you why I hadn't been around and the issues I had going on , in true Boofo style you put out big supporting arms and took it all on board and kept the replies and supportive messages flowing, never once did you say you were ill yourself or not feeling too good. ....

Looking back at those messages I see that darn near a year has gone by and I never did get back to your forum.

Rest easy Rob,you were a true friend and gentleman , you'll not be forgotten.

Saw the note on his Facebook page when it was posted and wasn't sure what to make of it at the time as it appeared kinda random with me not knowing of anythign which would see it to be coming.

While I didn't have the interaction with him that others did, I still found him to be approachable and helpful and not someone who would ever seem to to be put out at being asked to share his knowledge.

RIP Rob.

That is so sad! And unfair! I never had the pleasure of being in much personal contact with him. But I enjoyed his countless constructive posts over the years a lot! A whole lot!

My sincerest condolences to his family!

May you rest in peace! You put your stamp on this community but you will be missed forever!

I am absolutely stunned by this news. He helped me out so much on this forum. He taught me a lot (of the little) coding that I know.

Praying for his family. He will be missed around here for sure.

Life is a series of disappointments, and this is one of them.

RIP, Rob. You earned it many times over.
