Rob is my older brother died on June 15, 2009 after struggling with cancer for a couple of years. He was born on November 15, 1962, so he was about 21 months older than me, though he was only a year ahead of me in school because of how our birthdays fell. He has a medical degree (specializing in psychiatry) from the University of Tennessee and he was a Lt. Colonel in the Army, having worked his way up to chief of behavioral sciences in Europe. Since he was sort of hidden away in the army, he has very little presence on the web, which is a shame since he was a terrific writer and composer of music. Some of his work will appear on these pages so others can appreciate his talent.
