The Clarke family lost an integral part of our team on Sunday, September 7. Rob Giner, Jr. passed away suddenly at the age of 30. Rob touched the lives of many fellow employees throughout his 10 years at Clarke.
Rob began as a seasonal backpack technician in 2004. But it became obvious he had much more to offer as he completed his electrical engineering degree at a local community college. While most of us find the field complex, it was easy for Rob. This made him an ideal fit to work on Clarke ULV applicators and aquatic aerators. Rob relished the thrill of a “eureka” moment when discovering a solution.
Rob spent the last five years as mechanic dedicated to keeping Clarke’s service fleet and application equipment running at peak efficiencies. Last summer, Rob eagerly accepted the responsibility of providing technical support to Clarke’s equipment customers. He truly enjoyed building relationships with Clarke’s sales team and external customers.
Rob’s work with Clarke was very important to him and that was evident in the pride that he put into everything he did. He truly embodied the spirit of teamwork and you could count on him for anything, whether personal or professional.
We will miss his grin, spirit of teamwork, willingness to help wherever needed, tenacity and especially his heart. Rob was a valued colleague and a dear friend to many. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rob’s family and friends and the members of his extended Clarke family.
