Rob had a passion for science, having dedicated much of his life to studying alternative therapeutics for cancer. He was a brilliant man with a creative mind, always able to think outside of the box. Being a scientist wasn’t just a job for him, it was his way of life. Rob was a selfless man who dedicated his life to teaching others. He taught several courses at Laurentian University and Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) and supervised many undergraduate and graduate students. He was a great mentor who truly cared about the success of his students. Rob made a positive impact on the lives of so many, he will be greatly missed.
The family would like to send thanks to the Symptoms Management Team at the Northeast Cancer Center and a special thanks to the entire staff at Maison McCulloch Hospice for their exceptional care and kindness.
