My dear friend Rob ... since I moved away, I have so missed talking with Rob, laughing with him, and working with him, too. I trusted him so as a friend and a co-worker. I send my sad sympathy to Joyce, John, and all who love Rob.

My condolences to the Rothe family and relatives. I worked with Rob at KC in the 90's and will miss his warmth, insight, humor, and friendship. Although we hadn't seen much of each other lately, I value the time I shared with him. In sympathy,

I am very sad to hear about Rob's passing. He was a devoted and loving father to John and husband to Joyce. I was always impressed with his commitment to spending time with his family and to raising John to be the man he is today. Rob was also exceedingly generous with his time and energy with John's friends and that generosity left an impression on me. Rob will be sorely missed and I offer my deepest condolences to Joyce and John and to all of Rob's family and friends in this very difficult time.

I was so sorry to hear about Rob. We spent many years together in Marketing Research and he truly gave me an appreciation for visualizing information via tab plans when I first joined the department. He was always encouraging and full of knowledge. We shared a love of biking,the outdoors, and concerts at Lawrence University. I will miss him!Respectfully,Mary Ellyn Vicksta
