Our Friend, Robert W. Holmes — Visit Today to Read More

Posted by Andrew Greess on Jan 21, 2017

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of our friend and colleague, Rob Holmes. 

Rob Holmes

Rob started with Quality Equipment and Spray as office manager and then created the shipping department that enables us to serve our online pest & weed equipment customers around the world.  Early in his career he was an Orkin pest control technician and supervisor and this experience enabled him to provide valuable advice to his customers, many of whom where his friends.

Rob had a kind word for everyone and was always in a good mood and able to cheer up anyone he came in contact with.   When he first joined us several years ago, he was always so upbeat and happy I told him he reminds me of the young boy who opens the door, sees a room full of horse poop and happily exclaims, "Where's the pony?"  

Rob and his wife Amy were very active in their church and supported and coached many many people who came to them for help and guidance.

Rob is survived by his son Ben.  

Rob will be missed by all who knew him.  Goodbye Friend.

Robert Warren Holmes  

February 20, 1953 - January 14, 2017.
