To the Reeder family, and to every First Responder that ever had the pleasure of working with Rob, I offer My deepest condolences. I worked with Rob in the mid to late 90’s while I was a Supervisor at KQT, and a Student Nurse at Widener University. Rob brought the ACLS program to Widener. What an amazing teacher, amazing man, and one of the funniest people that I have ever met. Rest In Peace Rob, and my God look after, and Bless your family.
