(Jan 2, 1969 – Jan 4, 2015) – It is with profound sadness and heartbreak we announce the sudden passing of our dear Rob at home just two days after celebrating his 46th birthday.
Predeceased by his Dad, mentor, and best friend Marcello on December 29, 1995, Rob is survived by his devastated family: long time love Erin, sons Treyden and Styles, Mom Assunta Maria (Mary), brother Larry, sister Diane (Darryl), and many relatives throughout British Columbia, Belgium, and North Eastern Italy. As well as his many lifelong friends. Missing him will be his beloved girls, bulldogs Stella and Murphy.
From the moment Rob came into this world he blazed through life. He was born and raised in Kamloops graduating from Norkam Secondary. His career in the nightclub industry began soon after. He escalated up the ranks from Doorman, Bar Manager, and finally to General Manager of Cactus Jacks. He was passionate about his work, his employees, and helping the business to grow and succeed.
Rob was an avid sports fan and excelled at all sports throughout his life due to his drive and determination to always push himself to the limit. His natural artistic ability, evident by the age of 5, was a hobby which he enjoyed throughout his life. Although losing his Dad devastated Rob he continued to be an upbeat and caring man who loved people and made many friends.
The family would like to thank the neighbour, a paramedic, who rushed over to help as well as the BC Ambulance Service, and Kamloops Fire and Rescue personnel who tried feverishly to help Rob. Thank you also to Tracy and Forest from RCMP Victim Services who were there to assist us during this tragic loss.
A memorial service of Rob’s life was held at Kamloops Alliance Church (233 Fortune Drive) at 1:00 p.m. on Friday January 16, 2015. In lieu of flowers donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in Rob’s name would greatly be appreciated. The service will be webcast for several weeks online at www.NTFuneral.com. Arrangements entrusted to North Thompson Funeral Services, Kamloops, BC, 250-377-8225.
In life and always Rob you will be forever loved and cherished.Print This Obituary & Condolences
