Robert was such an amazing and positive person and will always be remembered. During the short time I knew Robert I instantly knew he was such a genuine person. I remember so much about him but what I remember the most is how caring he was for others. Robert was the kind of guy who would do anything for anyone. I remember how he could always change my mood and put a smile on my face. He sure had a way with his words. Anyone who knew Robert knew they were blessed to know and have a relationship with such a funny, kind, and cheerful man. Praying hard for all of the family and friends of Robert. He will forever be missed by many!

He was always the life of the party at the lake and one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. So much fun to be around! So glad I had the pleasure of knowing him and I’m so so sorry for your loss.

Don’t know where to start.
I am really going to miss this guy. I know I’m not the only one he messed with but it would absolutely tickle him when he got one over me.
Gonna miss him calling me and telling me every cold cloudy day and saying “Looks like snow clouds” and then laugh his head off.
Better yet we were on the roof painting a gable on clear beautiful day and out of nowhere he looked across the area and asked me “ About how far can you see from here”. Of course I look out and said “I bet I can see about 15 miles”
He then busted out laughing saying “Man your eyes are in bad shape”
Why is that I asked as he laughed harder
He said” heck man I can see the sun and it’s billions of miles away”
He had never let me live the down and would laugh every single time.
Yep that’s my story and he made me stick to it.
Karen you know Robert and I had a special relationship but there is no way I could possibly miss him more than you.
I have many people outside the family that is praying for you.
Love you and gonna miss him as well.

It's not going to be the same without you Robert. I will make sure I have the stamina, as you'd say, to keep on keeping on. I wish I could have seen you, Karen, and everyone well before this. Will forever remember you. Love you always my "adopted" uncle Robert.
