To Robert's Family,
I had the pleasure of working with Rob at Trader Joes. He was a kind and gentle man, who always took the time to ask about your day, and how things were going. He was truly genuine in his concern, and always offered a kind word, or quick witted antidote that would bring a smile. He will be missed greatly by his Trader Joe "Family". We will keep his memory alive in our hearts. Godspeed to you all,

I met Rob several times through the Schifino Family & the Miss Rhode Island Scholarship Organization. I found him to be kind, intelligent, and a gentleman with such a giving heart. My condolences to his friends & family members, both in Rhode Island & Virginia.

I worked with Robert at Trader Joe's, we started on the same day. From day one, he made everyday a better day just by being Robert. He was kindhearted, gentle and quick-witted. He loved to make people laugh and his compassion for others was truly genuine and never wavered. He'll be in my heart forever. Heartfelt love to his family and thank you for letting us have him for the time that we did. xoxoxoxo Wendy

I worked with Rob at Pilgrim High School. He was a gentleman through and through. He was a kind hearted soul. He made us laugh when it was desperately needed! For that alone, we were blessed to know him. His "Good Morning, Miss Atturio" with his nod will be surely missed. My heart and prayers go out to his family and friends. He was a great addition to the Pilgrim Family. It was too short of a time, but he is with the angels now. Love, Miss A
