Sadly, Robert Saltzman will be missed greatly. He and his family have been a part of our families lives ever since we were practically babies. He has brought joy to us all. The best thing I can remember about him is that he was a walking computer for vehicles. If you had a problem with any vehicle, he had the answer! He cared about everyone. If you broke down and needed help, he was the one to call because he would find a way to show up and provide any assistance.

God Bless you Rob Saltzman.

I give my Condolences to your entire family... Love you all!!!
