We’re Kind of Blue without Honui Moai Rob (Overproof) Fertig


One year ago today – we lost one of our Family – Honui Moai Rob (Overproof) Fertig. Rob is missed immeasurably by the Fellows of the Fraternal Order of Moai, and The Order is tremendously grateful for the $3,600 donated to the FOM Foundation in Rob’s memory by his friends and family.

Rob enjoyed life fully and had passion for Baseball (GO RED SOX!!!), Jazz music – especially Miles Davis, sweet fuzzy Orange Cats, delicious Cocktails – be they classics like a Ti’ Punch or an Old Fashioned, or tasty Tiki cocktails, all things Political - and of course – his wife Caroline (Honui Moai Princess Pupule).

To honor Rob’s memory and the things he loved, the Fraternal Order of Moai Foundation will be donating to causes that reflect what Rob loved. Recipients of these gifts in Rob’s memory are:

The Lanai Cat Sanctuary https://www.lanaicatsanctuary.org/, where $2,500 will be donated to care for the medical needs of their 640 cats, as well as an in-place sponsorship for Bruno, an orange superstar of the sanctuary found at the local Four Seasons hotel as a small kitten. Bruno loves to ride on visitors’ shoulders and now he’s in his very own Fur Seasons!

KRU Baseball Little League team https://www.facebook.com/KRUBaseball808/ on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. To honor Rob’s love of baseball and the completion of his quest to get to every MLB stadium – ending with him throwing out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium, KRU will receive a donation of $600 for equipment and to continue the success of the program.

The House of Miles (HOME) http://www.houseofmilesestl.org is the restored childhood home of Miles Davis, the most revered jazz trumpeter of all time, and Rob’s very favorite Jazz musician. The House of Miles provides educational and cultural enrichment for the East St. Louis community, including tours, music lessons, and appreciation of jazz and blues music. The $500 donation will include a commemorative brick to honor Rob’s memory.

Here are a few pictures of Rob and some of his favorite things:
