    Uncle Robert was a great man. Kind, sincere, & compassionate to all. A loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, & great friend to many. You will be so dearly missed from all the family and friends. My heart goes out the Aunt Joyce, Paula, Becky & the family. I know you’ve already given Grandmother & Grandfather, Uncle Jack & James a great big hug. Do me a favor, give Jimmy a big hug & tell him I love him with all my heart, as he too is greatly missed here on earth. He told me once that he had heard a quote: “Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again.” I know our paths will pass again one day. Until then: wish you both were still here to tell you that I love you so much. Love Billy.

    Mr Robert was one of the good guys. Coach softball at Malbis ballpark. Such fond memories I have, the competition with the other coaches( my dad being one of them) was all in fun except on the field, and even then I found it funny. He was a member of this community when it was close knit, he was quite a special man and he will be missed. Love to Mrs Joyce and the fam
