I am so very sad that Robbie has passed. I cant even believe he was fighting cancer and I didnt know. My prayers are with his family during this very sad time.

I've known the Danner's since 1975 when I moved to Rossville. There never was a better family to get to know, from Rob's dad, big Bob to each of his immediate family and siblings. If you needed something done, just call and they would be there. Rob was one of the most giving man I have ever known. It was a rarity not to see a smile on his face and a positive attitude. It rubbed off on you. Rich

My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I lost the love of my life, Kathy six years ago. I pray that God will be with you at this difficult time.

Little did I know the first day I walked on the job site as project engineer wearing one of my loudest Hawaiian shirts and sporting my California attitude in Hoopeston 25 years ago, that day would have been the start of an enduring personal and professional relationship. Rob, it has been my honor working with you and knowing you as a friend. You are one of the good guys and I will miss you dearly. Take care my friend. We'll have more stories to share we meet again. Michael

I have hundreds of memories, way too many to list. All were fantastic, if you were feeling low and down and out , all you had to do was drop by the shop and you would be back to 100% again. The only bad memory I will have is losing a very good friend!!!
