Sad time

Sorry for your loss. Never met Robert but read almost all he posted. Life is short.

The one thing Robert really missed as he was getting sicker was red wine so tonight please have a glass in his honor.

Will do Chris.


There's definitely a moment of silence for all airheads tonight.


RIP Wire

Some things make no sense. All I can figure is God needed his airhead fixed. I'm gonna miss his advice. My deepest condolences to the family.

A sad day for ADV and all who ever had contact with Robert.
My "Wirewrkr plug wires" will make me think of him every time I fire up my Airhead.

What a sad day! He is truly free now. My deepest condolences to his family! I never met him here, but I hope to meet him one day up there. What a guy...!

I never met him, never even did business with him. However, I was always impressed with what he had to say and how when people needed a product from him that they could buy cheaper from thier BMW dealer, he would send them that way rather than cost them more money than needed. Not many have that kind of ethics. All the best to his family.

Genuinely sad to read this. It's a strange thing to be this affected by someone you've never met, but apparently such is the impact Robert's had around here.

Today I'm thinking about his unique contribution to this place, his friends and his family. Sincere condolences and best wishes.

The airhead's still ticking down cooler from a ride, I think I'll go sit with it and sip on a red.

The only good thing about this is that he's not in pain any more.

I was cleaning my computer area this morning and came across the receipt from a turn signal harness that I bought from Robert about a month ago. On it he'd taken the time to write me a thank you note. I remember thinking how nice it was when I received it.

Thanks Robert, and peace be with you on your new journey.
