Rob was born September 14, 1965, to the late Greg Howard and Glenda (Gilbird) Howard in Webb City, Missouri. In Robs early years he worked as a poker dealer at the casino and did carpentry most his life. His true passion was creating art. Rob was a man with a wonderful sense of humor that always filled a room with laughter. He was known by family for his amazing cheesecake and fudge that will greatly be missed at family gatherings. He enjoyed spending time playing board games and Pass the Pigs with his family. He was a risk taker when it came to these games and always willing to give it his all to win.
