This Company and all of us at RBL are dedicated to remembering two individuals that made our company and its successes possible. Roy Nelson and Ryan Pieper were an integral part of RBL and their laughter, personal qualities and commitment to our success are greatly missed. To have lost them both so unexpectedly and suddenly has left a void in RBL that can never be filled. Their presence was an irreplaceable asset to our company and made us who we were then and who we still are today.
Roy Nelson was my dear personal friend and business partner for over 30 years, and I could not have had a better friend and partner in creating RBL, Inc. Roy was an avid golfer, inventor and creative man. He was such an inspiration to many, and I cannot recall anyone not enjoying the time they spent with Roy.
Ryan Pieper was my son. Ryan loved the Railroad Industry and the people that he worked with and was so excited to be part of this great industry. Ryan was also an avid outdoorsman and was a true sportsman and conservationist.
I was blessed to have been allowed the pleasure of working alongside my son on a day-to-day basis and I am heartbroken for the loss of such a unique and wonderful privilege. I am proud to call Ryan my son and I will forever miss his inspiration, personality, enthusiasm and dedication to our efforts.
RBL, Inc./Robolube will never be the same without Roy and Ryan, but we promise to always dedicate our efforts and future successes to their memory and the inspiration that they gave to us.
~ Robert Pieper, President
