Little brother...I miss you so much and cant believe your gone. My life will never be the same, but I carry you with me always.


Steve & Tricia Wooldridge/Henry Jones

Our hearts are truly saddened to hear the news of the passing of DJ Rob. He was much loved by us, and my departed brother, Henry Jones.

Rob was a cherished friend to Henry and instrumental in him becoming locally famous for his karaoke version of "Mustang Sally". He deejayed several events for us as a family: Henry's 50th birthday party, my 50th birthday party, our wedding, my best friend's wedding...because of him, we have beautiful lifelong memories.

We can only imagine your grief, but we trust in God, and encourage you as a family to turn to Him for all of your needs. His promises are true and He will bring you through the difficult times that you are facing. Our prayers are with you for God's grace, and perfect peace.

Thank you Rob for your loving friendship, you will be missed by us...and many, many more.
