Mr. Henke was so much fun. When ever I went over to the Henke's, Mr. Henke always made sure we had the best time.

He was holding the bag of marsh mellows and made up a saying like " Mr. Marsh Mellow King, may I

I knew Rob thru my brother Jose Spurlock and spent a number of times visiting over laughter and fine wine. I could always see the integrity and love for family and life shine through. Indeed he'll be missed but never forgotten!

Although we do not you personally, we have been praying for all of you from the moment you heard. Just hearing about what a wonderful man Rob was and how amazing your family is has made me want to be a better parent. I will honor his memory by enjoying the precious time I have with my family.

My sympathies go out to the entire Henke Family. I have been having a hard time wrapping my head around Rob’s passing as I had just spoke with him a few weeks back talking about how positive he was feeling. Rob was an amazing man that will be missed. He was a trustworthy and hard working man that would do anything to make things right and beneficial to all. Our family will keep him and all of his family in our prayers through this very hard time.
