With sincere sympathy. I was so sorry to hear of Rob’s passing. I have known him my entire life. We were in school together and worked together at the Wooster Post Office for many years. I considered him not only a great guy but a friend. I am so sad to think he is gone. We enjoyed talking about our kids together and he was so proud of his daughters and loved you very much. We have lost a great person and I will miss him. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers at this time. God Bless

So sorry to here about Rob passing away.
worked with him at the Ashland Post Office when he was our OIC. Always cheerful, got to talk to him about his (and my) daughters when showing sheep at the fairs. Knowing him was a pleasure, will keep the family in our prayers. RIP friend

I’m truly sorry for your families loss. Rob was my PM for many years at the Millersburg PO and even if we didn’t see eye to eye on some things we could always talk things out. We’d talk about camping and traveling which he enjoyed doing with his family. We would talk about our kids and he loved his girls and would do anything for them you could tell. Again so sorry for the void he has left in your lives with his passing.

MY Sincerest Condolences, LOVE of GOD, & PRAYERS to ALL of you. Rob was 4 years younger than I, but one of my brother's (Donn) best buddies. So, I got to know Rob as me being the older kid. I really thought he was a kool guy, and ALL the Reichert children are REALLY GREAT!
I never had either one of his parents for teachers, but I always enjoyed them along with Rob & the other children in our activities w/ the New Pittsburg Lions & at the GREAT St Peter's in New Pittsburg.
ROB is sorely missed, I know.
I say to YOU Sharon, your daughters & ALL the REICHERT FAMILY:
THINK POSITIVE, for ROB'S sake. He is at PEACE NOW with his parents.
READ: Ecclesiastics 3:1-10 (=/-) PLEASE!

My condolences! Rob was a great man! He always had a joke! Always made me chuckle! He will be greatly missed!!!! RiH Rob! Hugs to you family!

So incredibly saddened and shocked. I just spoke with him! Prayers from my family to Rob’s. He is missed!

Rob has been one of my best friends in the Postal Service I will miss him dearly. He always needled me because I played tennis in college and hated basketball. He truly loved his children and took great pride in them he always spoke of them with a smile. I always said I had two brothers in the Postal Service and he was one them what a truly good person he was.

Sharon, Andrea and Kelsey I am so sorry . I met ROB at the Wooster Post Office and our kids went to school together. He trained me when I started. The stories and memories of the years are many and most are great and laughable. Recently he asked me to be his acting supervisor and I felt honored. So for the last year and a half I have been mentored by him. What a great ride. He taught me things I needed to know and taught me some things I thought I already knew. One day he apologized for being short and yelling and me and I was like are you kidding me? If that’s yelling I really like you as my boss.. And not everything was always postal. He taught me things about life. He was a great man and left a great mark on a lot of people he knows. He was compassionate and understanding. He loved all of you girls !! He will be remembered greatly for being who he was and what he did. My thoughts, prayers and hugs to all you.

We are saddened and shocked to hear of Rob's passing. He truly was a delight and we enjoyed camping with him and Sharon. Sending many thoughts and prayers for your family during this difficult time.

Please accept my sympathies for this tragic loss. I, too, knew Rob from the Post Office and heard over the years about his family. He loved you all so much! He was a great guy and a caring individual, and the entire family is in my thoughts and prayers. Wishing you peace in this time of loss.

so sorry for your loss,I loved talking with him about the good ol days when our schools football teams were rivals.

We were so shocked to hear the news about our great friend (Chuck) Rob. Our hearts are heavy and sadden by the news. We prayers for the strength and comfort to be upon you and your family. We love you all.

Dear Sharon, Andrea, and Kelsey, I am so sorry for your loss and my heart reaches out to you. I have such fond memories of Rob and playing on your farm as a kid. Rob was an amazing person who put so much of himself into his community. Our thoughts are with you all in this time of grief.

Although we only met 3 years ago camping, it seems like its been longer. Dave and Rob could talk for hours about sports, music, who caught the bigger fish and just life in general. Rob will be missed as a "fishing buddy", big brother and a friend. We will cherish the memories close to our hearts.
Our deepest sympathies on his passing.

We extend our sympathies to Rob's family and will keep you in our prayers.

My thoughts and prayers for your family at this time of sorrow. Rob was a great guy worked with him several times though out his 40 years at the post office. He always had a story and treated all his co workers with deep respect. He will surely be missed. Wishing you find peace in all the wonderful memories you share.

Very sorry to hear of Rob’s passing.
Always enjoyed Rob at the girl’s softball games.
My dad spoke very highly of Rob. He will be missed.

I had the great pleasure of working with Rob for the past 6 years. He was a great mentor to me and a great person to work for and with. My thoughts and prayers for your family. He will be truly missed.

Dear Sharon, Andrea and Kelsey,
We are so very sorry to hear of Rob's passing. We hold such great memories that we shared with our families, raising our girls together; 4-H, the sheep!, and just spending time on your farm.

We pray that you feel the warmth and strength of family and friends that surround you now and always.
