I played 3 years with Robin at SIU. He was a great teammate. I remember a game against Illinois State, whose coach said he would never play on a major college team, when Robin came with the bases loaded and no outs in the top of the first and struck out the side. He went on to shut them down the rest of the game. He will be missed. My condolences to all his family and friends.

I was deeply saddened at Rob's passing. We've known each other since the late 80s when I met him in Palm Beach County. Quick wit, knew how to put things in proper perspective. We both love the game of golf and Rob was an incredible putter, good player. Had some of the best stories ever. I would tease him about being a huge Rickie Fowler fan to the point where he bought Puma clothing (Rickie's brand). I"m still wrestling with how he went out......I didn't see it coming. We would basically talk every other day but when three weeks passed and I couldn't reach him, I feared the worst. I will miss him A LOT -- farewell to "The Little Saluki"

I was saddened with the news of his passing and said a prayer for his family and friends. I knew him from Galesburg Senior High School and graduated with him in 1971. He was always happy and had a smile on his face. Until we meet again.

Sympathies to the Derry family,

Remembering the positive attitude and energy of Rob in our days at GHS and SIU. Will pass on the word of Rob's passing to fellow fraternity members who will also be saddened and were blessed to know Rob.

May the support of family and friends comfort the Derry family..
