Hi all, This is Ben Staab for those whom I have met. I met Rob in 1994 at Lake Washington Tech where we didn't learn **** about painting cars but succeeded in mastering the art of goofin' off. I first spoke with him as I admired his car. At that time he rolled a rootbeer brown mid 80's Toyota Corolla wagon dropped on Dotz 5's with yellow headlights, and a fuba. I thought who pimps a toyota wagon?! Only one man and I'm tellin' ya' that car was pretty fresh. We became good friends and later roomates as well as coworkers. Working with him at the Cycle barn's restoration center was always a learning experience intertwined with a comedy routine. Beyond his amazing painting skills he was an awesome friend, he challenged me, supported me, and constantly entertained me. I will honor his memory everyday I pick up a spray gun...I am a better man for having known him. My thoughts and prayers to you all. Please say hello at the service, I'll be sportin a scirocco shirt in his memory...He would have made fun of me if I wore a suit and tie!
