Thursday, January 3, 2019To Rob's Family: I worked with Rob at Novartis until his leave. I got to know him on a personal level. We bonded over conversations about cuisine and wine. He taught me a little trick of keeping bottles around of your child's birth year like he did of his kids. He then gifted me a bottle of a 2009 Prieure-Lichine as a start since that was my daughter's year of birth. I still have that bottle in my cellar and am reminded of the kind person and friend Rob was. I am deeply saddened by this solemn news. I extend my condolences to Karen, Matthew, and Monica and am sure this has been a long difficult road with his long battle. Though I never met you, Rob shared many stories with me such as Matthew being accepted to Wake Forest and who his freshmen year roommate was. To Monica getting her first job and Karen's work at Princeton. I was definitely touched by him and were so many and will always keep him in my memory and my heart.

Wednesday, January 2, 2019Ronnie & I extend our heartfelt condolences to the Chinn family...Karen, Monica & Matt, as well as, Gail & Hank. I’d like to share some of my fond memories having worked closely with Rob for many years. He was a man of high expectations, a no-nonsense person (yet, with me) he was patient and very supportive. He was a good listener and advisor with regard to work issues and family life too. We both shared our love of baseball, with one another and I truly enjoyed being privy to Matt’s HS baseball memories. I also remember a picture (proudly) displayed on Rob’s desk that Monica drew for him that captured their tender relationship. It always amazed me, how he could get his point across, yet still be kind and supportive, with those he loved. And yes, Rob loved to travel and take photos that captured historic, cultural heritage and architectural buildings/monuments, as well as, beautiful scenes that were breathtaking to see. In addition to him sharing these wonderful vacation memories (with me) a history lesson was included, and there was always food/meal pictures that he would describe in “vivid” detail. For someone that loved everything about food...cooking, eating and serving...he sure kept himself in fit shape! No matter how capable and successful he was in life, his fulfilment came from providing and caring for his family...you Karen, Monica & Matt. May you always find comfort in knowing you meant everything to Rob. My deepest and sincerest condolences...in Friendship, Carol

Sunday, December 30, 2018Robert was one of my best friends for much of my life. I was inspired by our conversations and touched by his generosity. His influences in my early life continue to benefit me today, about 45 years later. I’m deeply saddened to learn of his passing and offer our heartfelt condolences to Karen and his children and to Gail and Hank. I will always fondly remember my time spent with Robert and his family.
