Sounds like he had a meaningful life and loving family.  I hadn't kept up with Robert since school days; but, I do remember him well.  He was in the band with me at Stockard, and his sister Mary was with my sister Penny.  Robert was a very nice, quiet, cute guy.  We went steady for a short time in the 7th grade.     My deepest sympathy to his family on his passing.  RIP Robert.

I'm so sorry to hear of Robert's passing. I grew up across the street from Robert, Mary, & Gary in Arcadia Park. We had a lot of fun through the years & he was like a brother to me. I'm so glad to hear that he was so blessed with family and a successful career. He was a good guy, and I know he will be missed.

I was deeply saddened to read the news of Robert's passing. I went to school with him as far back as Arcadia Park Elementary. He was a genuinely kind person. I have nothing but fond memories of having him as a classmate. It seems he had a blessed life with all his aunts, uncles, cousins, remaining siblings, children, and grandchildren. Rest in peace, Robert, you will be missed I'm sure.
