He has WINGS

Robert Scanlon, Jr.

On Thursday April 4th, 2013, a dear friend to WINGS and beloved man to many, passed away.

Rob was the nephew of our Founder, Ginny Deerin, and one of WINGS' biggest cheerleaders. Whether attending events, volunteering his time, or being the first to "like" or "follow" our social media posts, Rob was a friend who truly supported us.

What we loved and will miss most about Rob was his kind spirit. He was a special and vibrant man who held the affection of so many people, not only in his community, but throughout the country. As someone remarked in his guest book, Rob, "viewed life with a freshness the rest of us too easily lose."

We're honored, but not one bit surprised that in lieu of flowers, Rob asked that donations be made to WINGS and Pet Helpers. That's just the kind of sweet soul he was.

For as big a fan as Rob was of WINGS, we were even bigger fans of his. He was not only a friend, but a member of the WINGS family, and he will be sorely missed. We know that he is now sporting a beautiful pair of wings.
