f To all of the Panacci’s,

To be a part of the Pinacci family is a blessing in itself, to have known Rob makes anyone that much more fortunate.

I can’t think of anyone as polite, respectful, charming and friendly (not to mention handsome) as Rob. He was one of the smartest, funniest and stronger guys that I have known. My Rob crush will live on forever. Love you all~

f Dear Panacci Family

It was with great sadness that we here at the Butte College Fire Academy learned of the loss of Rob. We still consider him a member of our extended family and this morning we made the announcement of his passing to the current (50th) academy. He was a fine young man and a credit to the fire service. The thoughts and prayers of the staff and cadets go out to you.

g To all the wonderful Panaccis:
I am so lucky to be able to attend many of your family events and be treated like family as well. Rob has always been an integral part of the memories that I have with your family. He was so lucky to have had such a great support team as you all, and I am lucky to have known him. I do remember him as a fairly ruthless volleyball player…perhaps he gets that from his Dad! He’ll be in my memories and you in my prayers.

g Words cannot express my deepest sorrow and sadness. I will always remember Rob’s smile, his warm heart, him ALWAYS sticking his hand out to shake mine, and him always beaming “Hi, Dennis, how are you!” Those are my memories that I will always have of him.

g Rob,
I remember you most when you were striving towards your career as a firefighter. You had to be a fighter even before you were on the force and we watched your persistence and perserverence as you first became an EMT and then went on to realize your life’s goal. One of my fondest memories was your first night working as an EMT. Our family was at your parents house and you had just finished your shift and had delivered a baby….wow!
Wishing you peace now. You will be talked about constantly and at some point we will all be able to move on with our lives, but it will never be the same without you.
To Janet, Frank, Kelly, Lisa, Tony, Gina and Frankie…thank you for sharing Rob with us. We love you all.

g Mr. and Mrs. Panacci and family,
Words cannot explain how devastated I was to hear of Rob’s passing. I’ll never forget the times we shared together, from playing football, to hanging out, to cruising around Lafayette in the Rob’s “UMA” mobile. Rob was a great friend, teammate, and a man whose only purpose was to help others. He was honestly the ultimate “good guy”, and I will always miss him dearly. Please take solace in the fact that Rob is now in heaven where he belongs (and I’m sure he’s looking out for people up there too). All the best.

g To the Panacci Family,

Words can not begin to express the sorrow we feel for all of you with the loss of your son and brother. You are in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers.

Rob has always been the guy Richie looked up to. Richie is so proud to have known Rob, and hopes to someday become a Firefighter that would make Rob proud.

If we can help your family in any way please let us know.

f Mr. and Mrs. Panacci and Family,
My condolences to you and your
family. I will always remember the times shared with Rob. Rob, people thought we were crazy to run around the resevoir in 100+ temp. little did they know how motivated you were in becoming a firefighter. Thanks for being my friend and a class act.

f Rob,
My favorite memories of us together take place at your old house in Pacifica when we were little kids. We’d convince our parents to let me stay an extra night after holidays so we could play. Uncle Frank would take us to a local park to play tackle football. We thought we were destined for the NFL. Years later I drove you to high school before you were old enough to drive, and I watched you grow from the unsure, shy ‘new kid’ in town into the confident, well-liked man that you became. It’s been a pleasure to be your cousin, and I have no doubt that your spirit will continue live on through the positive impact you’ve made on others. You’re already missed.

d Rob and I grew up in our cribs together, literally. Though our friendship was split by distance, he still held a place in all of the Fox family’s hearts. Honor Rob by not referring to him in past tense, saying, “he was a good kid”. Nothing about Rob himself has changed. He IS still a good kid and all other aspects. You will be missed. Remember picking gum off of the sidewalk and chewing it. YUMMM!

  1. I’m not trying to change the topic, just lookin for a little bit of insight because we are wanting to move to another local area and are looking for an legitimate moving organization. We were curious about using this company, Movers4Less 1992 N Main St Walnut Creek, CA 94596 – 925-309-6130. Is there some kind of movers fraud or review website I could use to do a background check?

  2. Very interesting topic, regards for putting up.

  3. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I really appreciate your efforts and I am waiting for your next post thanks once again.
