Robert was a loving father, son, brother, grandfather and friend. He was the type of guy that would stop doing whatever he was doing and help someone. If you had a junk car to get rid of, or needed any kind of tires, needed a good challenge at playing pool, playing cards, playing bingo, or a good hunt in the woods or catch a fish for a good fish story Bob was your guy. He would always try to make you smile by his jokes. Robert was full of life and love for everyone.
