Rob was one of my debate partners at Jeff High School. His gift with languages was simply phenomenal. I remember, during one debate round, he became so engrossed in our opponents' arguments that he unconsciously wrote notes on his legal pad entirely in Spanish. I was impressed at the time with his fearlessness in travelling to Japan as a junior to study. He had an amazing range of knowledge on practically any subject. It's so heartening to learn about his passion for teaching and engaging others.
