  40. Robert was a great person and the ultimate professional. He will be missed greatly and we will keep his family in our prayers

  41. Robert was more than a boss. He was a true friend that I was lucky enough to work with every day. Im almost hesitant to post this message because nothing I can write will adequately do him justice. He was an outstanding editor who started each day asking, “How can we help our audience?” And he genuinely meant it he had a list of questions from the broker perspective taped to his computer monitor to ensure he was always acting as a voice and advocate for them. He was so passionate about his job and he loved covering the employee benefits industry. It’s the same passion he brought to the rest of his life. He had great stories to share about Judah and Canfield and I could hear the pride in his voice each time he talked about them. Lately he was particularly animated in sharing tales of teaching Judah how to swim in the early mornings before work. Robert, I will miss you greatly.

  42. Mrs. Whiddon, I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. My prayers are with you and your family. I never met your husband, but I’ve read his magazine for several years. I have great respect for his work. May we follow in his footsteps and carry on with his committment of being a wonderful editor.

  43. While I never personally met Bob, as a publicist, I worked with him quite often on behalf of my clients. I knew him to be kind, a genuinely nice person and easy to work with. I was deeply surprised and upset on hearing of his death so suddenly the other day. My thoughts and condolensces are with the rest of the Whiddon family.

  44. To the Whiddon family, I had the pleasure of working with Robert in the four years I was editor in chief of Employee Benefit News Canada. His energy and creativity challenged me. He was always willing to take on more work and lend a helping hand. I particularly remember how keen he was during last year’s fitness challenge and how much more fun he made it for everyone. He also adored his family. I can’t believe he is gone. May you soon find peace after this terrible time.

  45. To the Whiddon Family, I offer my sincerest condolences for your loss. Robert was an exceptional editor, and his presence and talent will be greatly missed. You and Robert are in my thoughts and prayers.

  46. To the Whiddon Family, I offer my most heartfelt condolences. Robert was a passionate, dedicated man. His enthusiasm, commitment and professionalism will be missed. My thoughts go out to you during this difficult time.

  47. I only knew Robert for eight months, but in that time he inspired me more than any other colleague I have ever worked with. His intense passion for his work and family, whom he spoke of with such pride and affection, helped me to work with a sense of purpose and inspired me to give myself completely to those I love. And you could always count on Robert for comic relief if work life got too stressful or tedious. I miss you, Robert.

  48. I’m deeply saddened by the loss of Robert. Working with him over the last four years has brought all of us a lot of joy, laughs and inspiration. I will miss Robert’s sense of humor and his commitment to doing a great job. I loved the wonderful and hilarious stories he told us about his boys. He loved his family so much. My heart goes out to his family.

  49. I only spoke with Robert once, very recently. At the end of our 30-minute conversation I knew he was passionate about his work, and his life. I can not even begin to imagine the loss that you, his family and close friends, are experiencing right now. So my prayers are for you, knowing that Robert is in heaven. May God bless you and comfort you. Christopher Frett Advent Information Services

  50. To the Whiddon family, Please know you are in my prayers at this time. Though I never met Robert, I did get to know him through his work at Employee Benefit News.

  51. Robert Whiddon was a great friend and colleague who is already greatly missed. His energy and enthusiasm were contagious — he made you want to work smarter and harder just to keep up with him. Outside the office, his humor was infectious — he was just plain fun to be around, whether you were trying to keep up with him on a “fun run” at an industry event, or listening to him talk about his beloved wife and 2 boys. He was a one-of-a-kind and my heart goes out to his family.

  52. I only knew Robert through his role at EBA but found him to be very professional and a pleasure to work with. My deepest sympathy to his family & friends. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

God bless his wife and kids, and I’ll continue to pray that the Lord see all of you through such a difficult time.

  59. Judah and Canfield: Today I am proud to hold many titles – sister, dear friend, colleague, cousin, daugther & niece. But my favorite title is Auntie Genna which Robert & Joy gave me the honor to hold. Robert and I navigated the waters of life together. Today I stand alone as I have survived him. I am now captain of the lifeboat. I have no fear. Robert is the center and center holds. Thank you all for being here and the comfort you have provided me. Love,Cheers, Always, Genna

  62. I am so sorry to hear of Rob’s passing! I hadn’t seen Rob since a little after high school but I always had liked him very much. He was a sweet guy who always had a great wit and reserved nature. He was shy but outgoing at the same time which is what made him lovable. My deepest sympathies go out to his wife, his children and his friends and family. Peace be with you Rob! With love, Erin (Miller) Keating

  63. I got to know Robert helping him connect to industry experts from our organization and particpating in Robert’s webinar series. Through our business relationship we got to know each other on a personal basis. He was a very talented writer, editor and professional. His wit always helped me to keep things in perspective. I’ll miss him very much.

  64. I am shocked. I have known Robert for the past two years and most recently wrote for him. He was a consummate professional, encourager, friend and creative person. I am mourning and will miss him dearly. My prayers are with his family, particularly his wife and two little ones.

  65. Child of the pure unclouded brow And dreaming eyes of wonder! Though time be fleet, and I and thou Are half a life asunder, Thy loving smile will surely hail The love-gift of a fairy-tale. I have not seen thy sunny face, Nor heard thy silver laughter: No thought of me shall find a place In thy young lifes hereafter– Enough that now thou wilt not fail To listen to my fairy-tale. A tale begun in other days, When summer suns were glowing– A simple chime, that served in time The rhythm of our rowing– Whose echoes live in memory yet, Though envious years would say forget. Come, hearken then, ere voice of dread, With bitter tidings laden, Shall summon to unwelcome bed A melancholy maiden! We are but older children, dear, Who fret to find our bedtime near. Without, the frost, the blinding snow, The storm-winds moody madness– Within, the firelights ruddy glow, And childhoods nest of gladness. The magic words shall hold thee fast: Thou shalt not heed the raving blast. And, though the shadow of a sigh May tremble through the story, For happy summer days gone by, And vanishd summer glory– It shall not touch with breath of bale, The pleasance of our fairy-tale. Lewis Carroll (18321898) Robert…”Thy loving smile will surely hail”

  66. Dear Whiddon Family, I’ve known Robert since 5th grade, when he moved into my neighborhood. We have had a lasting friendship since then and have lots of fun memories through the years, from Beach Week to visits at Virginia Tech to Robert’s wedding to Joy to get togethers with his children. He was truly one-of-a-kind and such a great thinker. He had this way of looking at things in a unique way which he clearly brought with him to the workplace. I will always remember him with a bright look in his eyes and his charming character. Rest in peace, Robert. My heart goes out to your family! Love, Lee

  67. Joy, My thoughts and prayers have been with you since I heard the news of Robert’s passing. There are no words but know that there are many people who love and care about you and want to help you during this extremely difficult time. I didn’t know Robert well but I remember many wonderful stories about him and the children that you would share. My heart and all the strength I have go out to you and your beautiful kids.

  68. Joy, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you, the boys and your family. I can’t imagine how difficult this must be for you but I will pray that God gives you comfort during this sad and difficult time. God Bless You. Love, Joyette Jones-Geday and family.

  69. Dear Joy, Judah, Canfield and the Whiddon Family, I am truly sorry for your loss and have you in my prayers.Even with Robert’s sudden demise I pray that God will comfort your hearts through the grief and that the quality of immortality in the memories you shared with Robert will give you the strength to get through this. Joy please let me know if I may assist you with anything. Love Always, Maureen

  70. To the Whiddon Family, I am truly saddened by Rob’s passing. We attended high school together and I had the honor of being his senior homecoming date. Rob was caring, outgoing, fun, and sensitive to others. A true spirit. I am sure these qualities made him a wonderful husband and father. My thoughts are with you all.

  71. When Robert’s anguished cries went out The heavens wept When God heard the cries and sent his angels to assuage his child’s pain The sun shone through The rainbow appeard To show that God is near,far and everywhere I love you Robert, now and forever Mom

  72. Genna, Echoes of each others being. Whose eyes are those that look like mine? Whose smile reminds me of my own? Whose thoughts come through with just a glance? Who knows me as no others do? Who in the whole wide world is most like me Yet not like me at all? My sibling. (Faber & Mazlish, 1989) Love now and forever Mom

  73. Dear Whiddon Family, I’m truly sorry for your loss. Rob was a friend in high school. I remember his smile, sense of humor and spirit. We are all the better for having known him. As those we love come and go into our lives, they will always be in our hearts. Sincerely, Sara Padilla

  75. The loss of Robert is a tragedy for everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. I am so saddened by this news and wish to convey my deepest condolences to his family, friends and business colleagues. He will be greatly missed.

  76. Dear Genna and Mrs. St. Pierre and the Whiddon family, I was so sorry to hear about Robert. I’m sorry for Robert and for the sadness that you’re feeling now. I only met Robert on a few occasions but I liked him right from the start. I remember commenting to Genna at one point that I sometimes find very outgoing people to be a bit overwhelming but that wasn’t the case with Robert. He seemed to have a knack for putting people at ease and I greatly enjoyed his story telling and offbeat sense of humor. I also remember witnessing the banter between Genna and Robert and how much it reminded me of the good-humored back and forth with my own siblings. I wish you the best in the coming days and years, you’ll be in my thoughts.

  77. Dear Whiddon Family, I only met Robert once this February at a conference here in Texas, but he made an immediate impact. He was funny, smart, upbeat, and engaged all who were around him. I was shocked and saddened when I heard the news of his untimely passing. I know that the world was a better place with him and that his children will live on with his wonderful spirit.

  78. Dear Donna, Of all the things that I wished to share in life with you, this was not it. We have been connected for many years as sisters and now will walk the path that no one should together. There are no words that can help or bring you comfort but please know that I will be there for all those times that only we will feel and understand. Our sons are together now and will be there waiting for us. Please lean on me and I promise to be there to pick you up and hold you when you stumble. Robert is and always will be in our hearts and our memories are deep within us. We are blessed to have shared his life and he will continue to be in our lives every second of every day. I love you and am here . Love, Lizz

  79. Dear Bobby, You are my dear brother and I ache for the loss of Robert. You love him as your own and I felt that everytime we shared our family events. As your sister I wish I could make this better but I can’t. I will be there though to share the memories and hold you tight whenever you need me. I miss him too and will cherish all the memories he gave to me in sharing my life and my children’s lives. They lost their special cousin and I pray that Bobby and he are holding each other and will be there one day to hold us again. I will be here to hold you up as you did me…… Love, Lizz ( your sister)

  80. Dear Genna, When my brother became you and Robert’s stepfather I felt so blessed. You added such love to his life. I wish that I could say or make this time better for you but I know that I cannot. I do want you to know though that I do understand your heartache and I am here for you whenever you need me. You and Melissa share a very sad reality and I hope that you will allow us to help you. Robert will always be within us and all the love that he gave us all will surround us and help us when we need it. We are family, lean on us and our love will give us the strength to walk this road together. Love, Lizz ( your ” aunt”)

  81. Dear Joy, Though we have only shared a few family times together, please know you are family and my thoughts and love are with you, Judah and Canfield. There are no words that work, but know that we are here. We will all walk this road together and keep Robert and all the love he gave us surrounding his two boys.

  82. Bob, I love you. You were a wonderful friend to me since I met you 20+ years ago. You taught me to be bold and not afraid to be myself. You taught me the power to challenge myself even if it didnt feel comfortable. Your friendship was empowering and it made me into a better person. You made me laugh. You made me crazy. But you were a great friend. More than anything, you were fun I loved hanging out with you. You made me a better human being and for that I cant thank you enough. You were there for me anytime/everytime. I miss you.

  83. Dear Whiddon Family, My deepest sympathies. I have known Robert for about 5 years. For the past year as a contributing author for a monthly column. What struck me about Robert was his forward looking view of the world. Beyond my monthly column, we would spend much time on the phone simply discussing the need and the importance of leadership and integrity both in our industry, and in the world. He was truly one of “The Good Guys”, and is sorely missed. I was fortunate to have known him, and certainly considered him a friend.

  84. Donna & Bob, People always ask “Why?”, but just know that God is faithful and has a plan for each and everyone of us … My God provide your family Strength, Comfort, Wisdom & Love during this difficult time. God Bless, Patrice Tillman

  85. Dear Whiddon Family, I was not privileged to know Robert well — having only met him a couple times in the course of his coverage of the American Benefits Council. But I admired his approach to his profession and it is evident from the wonderful things that have been said about him, that he was held in that same high regard by those who knew him both personally and professionally. Please know that you are in our thoughts. Best wishes. James Klein American Benefits Council Washington, DC

  86. Joy and Family, I was so sad to hear about your loss. May God continue to bless and guide you during these difficult times. If you every need any one to talk to or need any help, please do not hesitate to call me. Jackie – American Association for Justice

  87. Genna and Donna: I was so sad and shocked to hear about Robert’s very untimely passing. I remember him from high school as Genna’s vivacious and mischievous younger brother. I remember had the same eyes and freckles as Genna. It is evident that over the past years Robert grew into a very successful man and a great and loving father. I know a big piece of Robert will stay alive in you both. It is unfortunate that it often takes tragedies to bring people together, but please know that I am here for you if you need me and that my heart and thoughts are with you both. Lots of love, Danielle Levy Almagor

  88. My condolences to Robert’s family and to his professional family at EBA. I met Robert a few years ago when he was attending a Benefit Advisors Network bi-annual meeting. We developed a good professional relationship that quickly turned into a good friendship. He was a pleasure to work with as an editor and always the epitome of a gentleman. He will be missed.

  89. Dear Robert, I’ll remember you too clearly But I’ll survive another day Conversations to share When there’s no one there I’ll imagine what you’d say I’ll see you in another life now, baby I’ll free you in my dreams But when I reach across the galaxy I will miss your company I’ll be looking for company Look and listen Through the years Someday you may hear me Still crying for company (Ricki Lee Jones) Love now and always Mom,Bob and Genna

  90. Dear Genna- As you know, i was friends with Robert in high school and after. Robert was an amazing person on many levels bringing laughter, joy, some goofiness and warmth into everyone’s lives that he touched. He will forever be in our memories and thoughts. Love, Anton

  91. I was just saddened to receive an email about Robert’s passing. I never actually met Robert face-to-face as we had a telephone and email professional relationship. And, as you can see, we worked many miles away from each other. However I always enjoyed working with him. He challenged me to be better in all of our discussions. He was always a tough, fair, engaged editor and writer…a true asset to his profession. My condolences go out to all of his family and friends…He will be missed!

  92. Dear Genevieve, I am so sad for you and your family. I hope that prayers and time will help you heal around the loss of your beloved brother, son, nephew, grandson and father. I will always be your friend Genevieve and plan to be there for you when you need a fraternal hand. Love from Sophia

  93. Genevieve, Having lost both of my brothers at an early age by heart breaks for you and your family. Keep the fond memories of your brother with you always.
