As I remember, his first contribution were css files for the webreport for the visually impaired (high contrast, ...). From there he took over maintenance of narrative web. Eg the alphabet index at the top, the birth/death columns on the index page of people, ...
He cause us once (or twice?) to do a double release due to a bad commit shortly before release :-)
After narweb he started coding in other plugins. Eg, he did the exif metadata gramplet.

Well, that is just of the top of my head...

Like all of us, some things here, some things there, as time permits, for motivations that a lot of people don't grasp.

We had some private messages and common points.
"I too, like you, do not have a lot of python knowledge.  I learned by
copying examples in the code...".

Without having met him, he seemed courageous (not afraid).

I started to communicate with Rob when he maintained web stuff (style
and reports). He was always ready to test last libraries and features.
He was embarked on projects such as maintenance of NarrativeWeb, style
sheets, metadata on media objects, and recently the possibility of an
alternative installation.

We know that his health declined.
"I want to say thank you personally from me and the future blind users
of Gramps!"

These days, he was still trying to make the code cleaner, always
thinking on the future development.
