Rob’s family immigrated to America from Albania, in the mid-1980s. They settled in Michigan and began a restaurant business, which he assisted with whenever he wasn’t playing football for the Livonia Orioles or Churchill Chargers. This is where Rob’s passion for service would start and what led him to join the Army and police department. His role models consisted of veterans and police officers, who would tell their war stories and explain to him the true meaning of service to our country before ourselves.
