in life, He was a good friend and a man that I trusted in life.
Thankful for how he touched my life |
|My sympathy to the family. Robert was a truly special person. His laughter and smile were contagious. I remember when I was a young guy, Robert was friends with my older brother. Phil's friends didn't always want the young kid hanging around with them and weren't always so nice to me, but Robert was the exception. He was always kind to me. He will be missed.|
|My sincere condolences to Robert's family he was a
longtime friend and one of the best men I have
ever met. I will miss him dearly. |
|Rest in peace Robert. This world lost a good soul
and you will be greatly missed by everyone who
