Rob was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta and is a fan of his beloved Flames for life! Far more importantly, he was blessed with a strong faith upbringing and mentors at his church who invested in him at key times in his walk with Jesus. Rob pursued his passion for aviation at Trinity Western University and spent time in Northern B.C. and Africa as he accumulated experience and flying hours.
It was in Calgary during the early years of his flying career that Rob met his amazing wife Tammy. Rob and Tammy have a passion for people, having served as small group leaders and now as coaches in that ministry. They have three fantastic kids, Emma, Gabby, and Joel.
Rob recognizes the undeserved saving grace of Christ in his life and takes great encouragement from 2 Corinthians 3:4-5: “Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God.”
