Condolence: Rob, Although it's been a long time from our high school days and also when you were in my wedding party to now where I'm at a loss to see you have left us and have went through so much pain. You were a lively, fun guy when we were growing up and we always had fun. I come by pictures sometimes of our fun and always brings me to a happier state. I'll miss you as well as your brother Joseph. May God watch out for you, Joseph and your sister in heaven. Nick

Condolence: To the family and friends of Rob, I'm sorry for your loss. I also lost a close family member to this diagnosis. What sustains me is God's promise for the time when no one will say "I am sick" Isaiah 33:24 and the time when we will see our loved ones again Isaiah 26:19

Condolence: Sadly I never had the chance to meet Rob, but by all accounts, he was an outstanding man. I was lucky enough to work with his brother-in-law when he also lived in Larchmont with his young family, and I still consider him a good friend today. AJ only had great things to say about Rob, seemingly the same as all others. My thoughts and sincere condolences are with the entire Whitaker and Maggio families, and may Rob now rest in peace... Amen.

Condolence: Rob and I had a very loud, very strange work relationship...for 18 years. But he trusted me...and I respected him. He fought so hard...armed with those green homemade smoothies...I thought he’d be the miracle. He fought so hard...you forgot he was fighting.
Today was a beautiful day to ride the Chariot home. God rest his soul. Jesus comfort your hearts. The Spirit send you his love. Amen

Condolence: I met Rob many years ago when he was running the Conferences for SourceMedia. All around great guy. Treated everyone with dignity & respect. Always had a smile on his face. It is sad that he left us so soon. Sincerest condolences to everyone in his family.

Condolence: I want to send my prayers to Rob's whole family!! I met Rob when he was about 7 when he and his family moved across the street from me in Lyndhurst. we spent a lot of time playing and having fun with the neighborhood kids. Rob was funny and always had a great sense of humor. Time gets away from us and we grow up and move through life. God needed another angel around the throne tonight so he asked Rob to join his sister and brother!!! LOve you guys!!!

Condolence: My condolence to the family of Mr. Whitaker. I understand the pain of losing a loved one in death. I just loss my dear brother in November 2017. These are sad times but at Psalm forty six verse ten, God has promise to be a refuge and strength and help during times of distress.

Condolence: I am so sad to hear this news.
Rob is the publisher who first gave me the opportunity to be in Accounting Today!!! After I wrote one article we spoke about how he could help publish me and build me as a Brand. I knew he was sick, but I never said Thank You. Thank You Rob for the impact you had on my career. He was a genuine good person.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I am so sorry for your loss.

Condolence: Courtney, Claire, Jack, & Michael it was very sad to hear from my daughter Kerry yesterday about Rob’s passing. He was an amazing person & such a great fun friend to the Sneyd’s. They will miss him very much. Peter and I met him a number of times & he always had a smile and a joke. I will always remember him at Gavin’s seventh Pirate Birthday party. I’m not sure who had more fun, Rob & Andrew or the kids! We offer our heartfelt condolences at this time. Courtney we are thinking of you with love.

Condolence From: Dan and Linda Rubinetti
Condolence: Hard to put into words the sadness we feel when we heard the news this morning - Rob and I spent so much time together at SourceMedia - countless lunches together just the two of us - trips to events together, golfing on courses we had no business playing on - dinners at restaurants we had no business being in...I enjoyed him as a colleague, I admired him as a friend and all-around great person - and I knew how much he LOVED Courtney and the kids - he talked about you all so much all the time - how he built a doll bed for Claire, he was so proud of that...I can only express my sincerest sympathy and condolences to all of the family - I am deeply sorry for your loss and I hope God shed's his perpetual light on Rob in Heaven - and on Courtney, Claire, Jack and Michael - Rob loved you all so much - please know that for as long as you walk this path one day at a time - with much love, Dan and Linda Rubinetti
