On September 25, 2022 Rob went to be with the Lord. His family sent this update:
"Rob’s passing on Sept. 25th has left us all in shock and grief. We, his family rejoice for him in his passage to Jesus and the eternal Kingdom. His presence is missed already and we grieve. He had almost completed a 3 week gospel/singing tour in Saskatchewan and we were looking forward to his flight home on Sept. 27th. From what we hear, he was about to go to a church service and the pastor’s wife heard him playing and singing on his guitar in another room and then she thought he was silently praying as it was quiet for a while. When she knocked on the door to get ready to go, Rob didn’t answer. When she went in, Rob was dead. The coroner feels it was a natural death and an instant one. We all believe that Rob had accomplished all the work Christ had asked of him and simply said, “Rob, it’s time to come home, my son.” Rob is at his forever home now, full of life and vitality in the Presence of Jesus. I’m sure he’s singing like never before!!"
