The 90s Network posted the sad news of his death on their Facebook page. They said: “Today we received the very bad news that our friend and colleague Rob Davis passed away suddenly.

Phil Fagan, CEO at Dublin Hospital Radio Network and colleague at The 90s Network, writes this tribute: “It is with great sadness that I tell you that one of my good friends and all round great guy Rob Davis has passed away suddenly overnight. Rob always had a warm welcome and he encouraged many presenters who started out on the journey of media and presenting especially during his time at Beaumont Hospital Radio. His radio career stems way back to the ARD days.
“He had a wonderful voice. He was a wonderful talent and most important he was a wonderful person and his family always came first. He was quite content working as a volunteer presenter and his presence will be missed by all who knew him, worked with him and listened to him. My deepest sympathies to his wife Jactina and his son Jordon.
“Rest In Peace Rob”.
