Well it sure is a sad time and I sure do miss our midnight chats on GTalk (or should I say midnight his side daytime my side) He did make mention a few times about his health issue but liked to keep it very much private so that was the way it was. He always made me smile during our chats always coming up with something out of the ordinary.

I too am running his country flag mod and now every time I see it I think of Rob and that is great as he was someone to be remembered.

Go well my friend the pain is now over and you are at peace

Me too, it will be with my Forums for as long as it can.

Thanks for such a great mod Rob, just wish you were still here to enjoy it...

Rob and I have been friends for 8 great years. We met on this forum and have IM'ed and talked via phone on many, many occasions. Unfortunately since my move to North Carolina 5 years ago we have not conversed as we had in the past and recently planned to do so but life was just too hectic.

I now wish I had found the time...

RIP my friend, you will be sorely missed but not forgotten.

Rest in peace Rob, such sad news. He was a great man, someone to aspire to. He'll be greatly missed by everyone who knew him personally and those he touched with his modifications.

For the persons who are willing to contribute to his memorial, if he has one, please contact the Hamilton's Funeral Home, as indicated in my first post. http://www.hamiltonsfuneralhome.com/...aspx?sid=12273

they will be able to guide you to the right person to contact, family member or else...

i do not have the entire informations, as Robert didn't want to publicise his situation and planned his death in the simpliest way possible...

the only thing i can tell is that his sons were his last thoughts, he hoped they will continue to live happy with some good but few memories of their father.

... someone asked me why i didn't post a condolence note on the Memorial site.. personal matters does not concern you, please... i had my way to go thru all this process, and his family is well aware of my wishes for them. in the last months, Robert and me shared for hours of discussions, thoughts and griefs... he was a real activist in his way of fighting death...

some may know a bit more about his health, as he was more concerned about his public image than his own comfort, because he decided that people didn't have to know he was sick... we already knew he had problems to see his sons, he was proud to fight the stupidities of the justice, even if it was one of the major reasons he was grumpy and sarcastic about a lot of people and things...

anyway, here you can share some thoughts and souvenirs about Robert...

... oh yeah, and he was a real pita sometimes... he knew he was, even proud to be... rofl

So how bad was he before he dies mate?
I knew he wasn't in a great way from the conversations we had, but I only knew him for a short time, it sounds like you and him were very close.

I had Boofo doing some work on my website, enjoing the chats with him, his advices and great company on msm. At some stage I heard nothing from him and I did not know what to think,so,I email /pm some people around and I was told he is not well. I hoped he will be fine untill I get an email with the link of this thread.
I am deeply sorry he is gone from this world and happy he is part of my forum.
My condolences to his family.

One thing I remember, he liked to collect keyrings for his boys. I sent him some NZ ones years ago.

I'll always remember when Bob invited me to join his site at the time - The Bear Facts 2 (some of the older members here will know the site well); it had its own private area for coders to share ideas and code snippets and a game called Legend of the Green Dragon which Bob was very fond of.

A lot of the modifications he released lately were actually modifications he developed back in those days and maintained and updated as and when vBulletin evolved and credit to his coding skills those mods have stood the test of time.
