Via HOMES, NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (November 9, 2017)—It is with great sadness we inform you that Rob Fessler of BRODA Seating passed away suddenly last Friday, November 3. His unexpected passing has shocked and devastated all who knew and loved him. Before moving to Canada and working for BRODA, Rob worked at Cape Medical Supply, Sandwich, Massachusetts for more than 20 years.

"Rob was a passionate advocate for our industry, and more than that he was a great guy and a joy to be around. Everyone here who knew him is devastated and we collectively send our thoughts and wishes to his family. There are special people in life who leave a positive imprint on those around them—Rob was one of those people and we will forever miss him for it."—Gary Sheehan, president and CEO, Cape Medical Supply

Rob was a strong advocate for the HME industry and a long-time supporter of HOMES. Prior to joining HOMES as the BRODA representative for the Northeast in 2013, Rob served on the HOMES board of directors from 2008–2010. "Rob was one of those unique people who greeted you with a big smile and was always very positive. You felt better after talking with him. A caring and compassionate man, he was in this industry to help people. He was one-of-a-kind and will be dearly missed," said Karyn Estrella, HOMES president and CEO.

Funeral services will take place Saturday, November 11 in Ontario, Canada. Click here for more information.
