Robert was raised in New Martinsville, West Virginia, where he was a proud son and brother. Robert spent a lot of his life in the Ohio Valley before moving to Texas.

Robert loved collecting movies and anything dragon related. He was an avid golfer in his younger days. Friday nights, at R&K Diner for catfish, was something he looked forward to all week.

Robert was a loving father, step-father and grandfather. He was a huge personality and always had a joke for any situation. If you met him, you loved him. Even while he was struggling through his illness, he never lost his sense of humor. He will be truly missed.
