You knew him as Rob Macdonald or Mac, we knew him as our inspiration. He was a living legend and his mark will be forever etched in this Valley he called home. An incredible miracle of a man defying all odds. Eternally youthful, like a modern day Peter Pan, he refused to grow up. He was a charismatic fast talker who craved the wind in his hair. He held his family in the highest regard and helped anyone who asked-even at his own expense. He was a giver, gentle yet strong. His children were his life, his grandchildren his heart, anything with wheels his passion. He loved music and wasn’t afraid to show his emotions. He was wild and crazy-never a dull moment was the theme of his life. “Giver till you quiver” and “all the fun all the time” his mottos. He loved adventure, he was spontaneous. His essence was sheer magic, he lit up a room with his very presence-such a bright light. He was always unapologetically himself with his long hair and purposely ripped jeans-a shining example to us all! He never followed the rules, he made his own. So to honor his memory we stray outside the obituary template. His memory will live on in the whisper of the wind and the rumble of an old muscle car.
Forever in our hearts and infinitely our guiding light.
The Celebration of Life for Rob will be held at Kin Beach on Thursday, August 31, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. (potluck).
