  4. I am greatly saddened to hear of Rob’s death. I will always remember him as a young man with great potential. He enjoyed provoking others to argue on almost any topic, especially government, guns, and sports, just for the fun of argument! I frequently told him he needed to quit working in Veterinary Medicine and go to Law School. I will always regret that I didn’t get to see him as a mature adult.

  5. My heart goes out to Robert’s family. I knew Rob through Nancy since high school, and I never met someone who could turn anything bad that happened into a positive like he did. He left a mark on everyone he met and I will never forget him. He will truly be missed by his family and friends. God bless.

  9. The Gagnier family,
    The best memories I have of Robert bring me back to when we were young. Watching wrestling in the basement with Jimmy, Robert, and my brother. Playing whatever sport was in season outside in the yard. I will never forget those days and am so sorry to hear about your loss. Words cannot provide enough healing, but might provide some comfort during this time. I am thinking of you guys.

  12. Ann, Gerry, Hollie and Jim, I am heartbroken for all of you. I know words are inadequate at this point, but I wanted to share something a friend wrote about my niece Teri after she passed away. It gave me some comfort and I hope it does you as well. Just imagine Rob saying to you: “I know everyone is grieving, but if your eyes beheld the beauty of God’s glory as mine do, you would weep for but a moment. All the brightness of the sun doesn’t come close to describing the magnitude of love here. And in the twinkling of an eye we’ll all be reunited and will abide with Him for all eternity.” Love to all of you!

  21. Dear Ann and Gerry, Holly and Jimmy,

    I was saddened to hear of the passing away of your youngest Robert, and am very sorry this could have happened to him at such a young age. It’s hard to understand why but I’m sure God has a good reason and plan for him. I remember Robert only as a young boy when living across the street first and then down the street at Bright Water, so only good memories of him are still with me.

    Please accept our sincerest sympathies to your family from our family, and I’m sorry we were not able to attend his service.

    Blessings from a longtime friend,
    Don, Victoria, Jessica and Alex
