They went on to have their son, Ian Robert on March 22, 2005. Robert is with his twin angels, Lilly and Ben in heaven. Robert’s faith was steadfast and never faltered through life’s challenges.

He was the most loving father and spouse a family could ask for. Robert loved to spend time with family, friends, and colleagues. Sharing his love for music-his passion, movies, whiskey, scotch, and wine. Robert was generous with his time. His door was always open both at work and home. He was the most genuine and caring human being. Robert’s kindness was legendary. His generosity was without bounds. Most importantly, Robert will be remembered for his wicked sense of humor. His patients continued to hope for his return after his battle with cancer. Many refused to be removed from his panel, after seven years with the hopes of his return to work. Robert’s integrity was beyond measure and recognized by all. He was recently named Southern California Permanente Medical Group Family Physician of the Year. His legacy will forever be. Robert is survived by his wife, Jennifer, son, Ian, and brother, Gregory.
