Eleanore and Family,

I never had the opportunity to meet any of Rob&s family members but , just as all of you, I knew Rob as a very great caring person. I worked for Great Lakes Chemical for 35 years. I worked with Rob in the Corporate Engineering Division both in El Dorado, AR and Memphis for many of those years. Rob always required us to be accountable, but he was fair to all. I can honestly say that I would not be where I am in my career today if it were not for Rob&s rigid expectations and strong work ethic. I will always remember Rob as a great friend and mentor.

May God bless you during these trying times.

In Christ,

Buddy Rowe

I was very saddened to learn about Rob&s passing. I had the pleasure of working for Rob during his last two years as CEO.

Rob was a good man who worked very hard to make certain that his decisions were fair and best for all concerned. Both he and Eleanor were very good to me and to my family and he will always hold a special and very fond place in my thoughts.

I know that no words can ease the pain of his passing. Please know that he touched many lives and that there are many people who have Rob and you in their thoughts and prayers.

Dear Ellie and family,

Rob was a great husband, family man, business man, and a fun person to be with.

We will really miss him...he was too young to pass away. Ellie, this has to be very hard on you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family.

We will treasure our many fun times we had together.
