  2. My condolences to you and your family. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family through this difficult time.

  3. I remember hiring Robert as an intern at 102.1 in Milwaukee.. He later became my assistant, and would go on to take over my role as Promotions Director. We had some amazing times, even more amazing laughs, and bailed each other out of some situations. Everyone loved him. And all that worked with him and knew him at the radio station, have expressed their sadness and loss. I got to know his mother and family. He always put everyone ahead of himself, even if it meant not sleeping or losing out on an opportunity to do something a lot more exciting.
    Robert, you will be missed. Shakespeare and I will be waiting for you in the New Rock truck across from Steny’s.
    Love you man!
