Robert
passed away in 2003 after a battle with esophageal cancer. In a new cover story
for People, Rob revealed how their relationship is influencing the kind of
father he hopes to be when his child is born later this year.

“I had a really close bond with my
dad. I was only with him for 15 years,” Rob told the mag. “That’s why
I’m looking forward to having that long-term bond with my child and being funny
and goofy like my dad was.”
