Ed was truly a wonderful and generous spirit. He was witty and charming, & could give it, as well as take it it. My heart goes out to his family. I am so sorry for your loss. He was a good man

One of the great examples of intense gentlemen that passed torches of knowledge to many. Lessons that have helped me believe that there is something left at the bottom when you thought you were empty. Thank you Coach Rob.

I had Mr. Rob for my sophomore English class and he made you feel like an equal, and not just a student. That class remains one of my favorites in my high school career. My condolences to his family.

Coach Rob was one of a kind. He always pushed you to be better version of the person you were the day before because he truly believed you would be. My sincerest condolences to his friends and family. He was sorely missed by many when he left John Glenn and he will surely be missed by all now.

I worked with Ed at John Glenn. He was a lot of fun. Best memory is when Ed, Paul, Dan K and Dan S dressed as women for a pep session. Best pep session EVER!
I will miss his smile and that twinkle in his eye. God Bless.

RIP Coach. I'll never forget seeing you yelling for me to "Turn it on" during an interception return, even though it got called back.
