  • Carol Ann and Koerner Family so sorry to learn of Rob’s passing. He was a joy, pleasure and privilege to work with at CCHS. His dedication and loyalty were exemplary. I’ll miss my good buddy.
    Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.

  • So sorry, Carol Ann, to read about your husband’s passing.

  • I am in shock. I am so sorry to hear this news. Rob was the best. I worked with him as one of the leaders of our Boy Scout troop when my son was a youngster and I was a single parent. Rob was an example, a mentor, and a good friend to both my son and lots of other boys who didn’t have a strong male role model in their lives. He was an excellent father to his own kids, and a family man with obvious love for his wife and children. He also taught me how to fish, how to do simple repairs at my house, and how to pack for camping so everything fit in the car! He touched many lives along the way, all to their benefit. We’ll miss you Rob!

  • Our time together as friends & in-laws was way to short. I will miss our time at ball games, dance, and of course the kids house watching football, pool gatherings, holidays or just visiting.
    Rest In Peace Rob
