Loved always meeting you both for a cuppa at Parkmore when we came down from Queensland. I’m longing for that to still happen with you soon I hope. Take care Sue and Barry Schmidt.

  15. What a beautiful service. I have only spent time with Rob on some family events but have always found him so genuine and always interested in what I have been up to and each time it was like I saw him yesterday. What an amazing Step father and Step Grandfather he was he certainly gave the family so much love. Was such a privilege for me to be apart of this service to get to know this amazing man. My thoughts are with Bev, Kylie, Penny and family and thanks for sharing Robs life with me today may his beautiful soul Rest In Peace.

  16. I wish I had had the opportunity to know Rob better. My memories are of a warm, happy man with that cheeky smile and Williams humor that always made everyone smile. One time he was there for me when I really needed him, even though it was highly inconvenient. I will always remember that and be greatful. Thank Rob, we will all miss you.

  25. My life is all the better for having known Rob – a great work colleague but more than that – a great and loyal friend. Even though later on we didn’t catch up as often, when we did, it was as though no time had passed at all. Always genuine, always friendly and always ready with a story or a cheeky jibe. You have shaped my working life in so many ways and put your stamp on my personal life as well – I am indebted to you. Rest in peace Robbie…

  29. Rob Williams, what a ripper bloke. Taught me a lot about timber and how to be a good rep, I tried to get him to learn about hardware & plumbing but, nah Rhino they are your specialties! I had a lot of really good working time with Scuttle even though he didn’t drink alcohol he would have been one of the funniest chilled blokes I have ever known. We made a great team and I will miss his charm and wit!
    Condolences to the family on a great blokes passing.

    1. Hi Peter, You were a great team and I have a lot of fond memories from those times.
      Cheers, Ken

  30. The finest person I ever played bowls with. Someone who never complained, someone who always could see the bright side, someone with a great sense of humor, someone who could see your side of the coin. Someone I will miss.

  31. My life has been enriched from having not only a super rep but an ongoing friendship with one of the best blokes anyone could meet !! Thanks for everything Rob, God bless you !! Paul (& Jenni ) Williams.
