Suddenly on October 16, 2015, Rob Schultheis lost his life in a tragic accident while out running. Rob loved life itself. The most important thing in life to him was the people that surrounded him. Those people were his family – didn’t matter if they were actual family members or not! This is what Rob loved about the Eastern Shore. That was just part of his extended family. He grew up on the other side of the bridge but when he graduated from Salisbury University in 2000 – he never came “home.” He made a new life on the Shore and really enjoyed the friendships and new “family” that he found there. Rob involved himself in almost anything he could. Rob gave 110% to everything he did – especially his family, but he always had time to help out in the community. It was more than just something to do – it was a great way for him to bond with his friends and really helped to mold him into the man that he became. He was a great husband, son, brother, dad, and friend. We know that he would be almost embarrassed to have all this fuss about him today – because he wasn’t about recognition. He was just about being Rob. We wish more people Lived Life Like Rob!
