Robert was employed with Employment Security and Economic Development where he did clerical work until his retirement in 2005.
Robert was truly a unique person and he always had a smile on his face. He never failed to make you smile with one of his witty comments or sincerely convincing stories. Robert was highly intelligent and he loved history making him a fountain of knowledge on many subjects. Robert enjoyed watching football and baseball. He loved playing fantasy baseball with friends. He often entertained his friends and family at home with BBQ’s and fish fry’s. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
They say it always rains when a good man dies. Well one died today. Robert, I will miss you more than words can describe. You were uniquely you and I loved you dearly. No girl could have asked for a better step-dad. We had a double rainbow at the house today just for you.
