  1. I had ridden over 5000 miles with Rob as part of the PUT and LEU. We were all excited about seeing each other again next week for the 2011 ride. Rob was a part of the rides core group and will be missed by many. I cannot express what it meant to the survivors we met to have the bagpipes played for their loved ones at services during our journey. Rob designed the tartan and was instrumental (no pun intended.....but he would appreciate it) in the creation of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Pipe Group. Rob was a military veteran serving as a pilot for the USMC and CBP. Keep flying high brother. Miss you and love you.
