I just found out Robin passed away several years ago. My condolences to his family. Robin hired me into the land department at Consumers Gas, where I retired from. He was always very kind and a wonderful boss to work for. He was always so proud of his children, and even when I saw him at IRWA Chapter 29 meetings, he would tell me about them. My sincere condolences. Marlene
