He was interested in everything, a great lover of life. He was always seeking out other knowledge and learning all he could. He loved to read and absorbed everything like a sponge. When he grew ill he even read up on his treatment and told the doctors what they needed to do to best care for him.

He loved wearing T-shirts with funny sayings on them, and showing them off to his family and friends. He was very athletic, he liked to play sports. He enjoyed basketball and took karate with his son Robert Jr, going on to become a black belt. In his younger days he joined a bowling league with his brother Terry.

He loved being with his grandchildren. He cared deeply about people. You could always count on him to help, and he would give you the shirt off his back if you needed. He was a dad to his whole neighborhood and you could always count on him to give you good advice. He loved helping people, and you could count on him for anything. He was always concerned about everyone else, and less concerned with himself. He was a once in a lifetime person, and he will be greatly missed.
