Only just now found out about Robert's passing and with grief and sadness I sign this comment acknowledging the wonderful person Robert is and the zest he had for life! I came to know Robert on the tennis courts and watched as he competed and always put 110% effort in his game! Robert touched us all and made all of us better! Thank You Robert for being my friend and God Bless your Family!

I am sorry to here this and apologize for not being able to attend his services. I am currently on a project at Borger,TX. For some reason I have been thinking of when I first meet Bobby, Mickey,and everyone else. We played as kids although we didn't even speak the same language, but had fun and got into trouble as boys always do. He will be missed but never forgotten.
Love, Rusty

Dear Dorothy,
I am so sorry to hear of Robert’s passing. I worked with Robert for many years and enjoyed his skill, knowledge and creative style when it came to problem solving. Over the years, I heard may stories and enjoyed his zest for life. Though his journey was not easy, he still tried to have a positive influence on others. I pray that the many happy memories of Robert’s life with you will, with time, overcome the sadness you are feeling. Know that Robert is with the Lord and is no longer in pain and you will be reunited one day. May he rest in peace and God give you comfort in your time of grief.
