DUer ZodiakIronfist, husband of VenusRising, died this past Tuesday.
Edited on Thu Jan-07-10 06:11 PM by lizziegrace
With her permission, I'm posting to let you know that Rob died of an apparent heart-attack when they were traveling back from Texas after visiting family for the holiday. They live here in Columbus.

Rob had a heart condition. He was 38.

Please keep VenusRising in your prayers. They had the kind of love the rest of us could only dream of having in our lives.

Godspeed Rob.

10. I am so very sad.
Rob was a moderator for a very short time here, but I enjoyed having him around while it lasted. Always with a strong opinion, but a wonderful ability to listen and reconsider.

I am so very, very sad for VenusRising and hope she has friends and family to comfort here. I can't even imagine what it would be like to lose my husband.

I can't even imagine what kind of shape VenusRising must be in. :(

Rob was a wonderful person. I really enjoyed meeting him and talking to him when I was there in Columbus.

104. My sympathies to VenusRising
and the rest of Rob's family and close friends.

All of us at DU have lost a great guy.

I had just recently started following Rob's YouTube channel. He was quite a talented bassist and really loved to play the instrument. His video's are testament to this.

Rock on, Zodiak.

I've not been in the lounge for so long. I just came here today for the first time in ages.

I am so sorry to hear about VenusRising's husband. She has always been such a beautiful soul here.

I also was lucky enough to meet them at your house a couple years ago. What a lovely couple and so clearly in love. It still makes me smile that Rob kept calling me "ma'am" despite the fact that we were the same age. What a gentleman!

I'm here in Columbus, so if there is anything that is needed, please let me know.

RIP Rob.

the funeral is set for Monday in his hometown.

I know VenusRising will be overwhelmed when she sees the threads here, in GD, her Facebook page and Rob's youtube channel.
