He was born on October 30th 1965 in Kewanee IL, to Thomas and Mary Rashid. He married his loving wife, Cathie A. Rashid, after being together for 10 years, on June 27th 1998 in Kewanee IL.

Dr. Rober graduated from Wethersfield High School in 1983, in Kewanee IL. Went on to graduate from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1997, with his Doctorate of Chiropractic. After graduating with his doctorate he moved to Middleboro MA to practice with his brother, Roger Rashid, then eventually taking over the practice, Middleboro Chiropractic DBA Gudmundsson Chiropractic, with the goal of helping and healing others lives.

He was a Master Mason, a 32nd Degree Scottish Right Mason, and Aleppo Shriner. He was OG #2 for the La Gloria Cubana Society and an ambassador for the Cigar Rights of America.

Some of his hobbies included, spending time watching and attending the Patriots games with his Son, Joshua N. Rashid and many of his friends. Patriot games had become a yearly tradition; he looked forward to his yearly fishing trips with his brother, James Rashid, and many friends.

Rober was one of the kindest hearted people I went to school with. I have several memories that I will always cherish, from scholatic bowl to La Gondola to the last time I remember seeing his at a Labor Day parade many years ago. My sincerest condolences to the family.

Dr. Rashid is already so sorely missed. Thank you for your family’s service to the law enforcement community throughout the years. A void is left from Rober’s passing; he was a gifted, compassionate man who truly cared about his patients and the community. Many people will smoke a cigar in his memory. Blessings to his family.

I cannot imagine the loss that you are feeling with the passing of "brother Bear" . The hole that he has left is a measure of our sadness but is also shows how much he touched others. We will miss his infectious laugh and his big heart, we'll miss his two strong hands.

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Rashid. He was a wonderful man and chiropractor. Being shy, I don't feel comfortable with people a lot of the time, but Dr. Rashid had such an easy-going, accepting manner that I felt very at ease with him. He is irreplaceable, and I will miss him. My heartfelt sympathies to the family.

"The tide recedes but leaves behind
bright seashells on the sand.
The sun goes down, but gentle
warmth still lingers on the land.
The music stops, and yet it echoes
on in sweet refrains…
For every joy that passes,
something beautiful remains."
