It is with much sadness to inform members that rowal5555 (ROB)has passed away in a Hospice in New Zealand after a long battle with Cancer.Rob remained positive until the end.
He was a long standing member of Bleeping.
Nothing made Rob happier than to help others. A true Gentleman.
Sadly missed.
Rest in Peace, ROB.

I never knew the guy. I've never seen on a web forum a mention of a member passing away. I've always wondered about people on the net that just one day never email you again, never log onto their messenger or ever post on a forum. Like, I would wonder "how would any one ever know if they died".
Well, at any rate, this is a great community here, and I am sure Rob will be missed.

It is always sad to hear of the death of long-standing Members of this community, and it feels like we have lost a very good friend of the family. I am sure that he will be missed.
