    Robert was one of my two best friends in high school. Unfortunately life takes us in different directions and i lost contact with him for many years. I again met Robert in Ozark Missouri in 2012 when I took a part time job at Walmart. We would talk and reminisce over old times all while doing our jobs. Robert had this personality where his conversations just pulled you in an made you feel comfortable, he knew no strangers. Robert will be truly missed by many and remembered by many more. Robert is with our Lord rejoicing and looking upon us and saying I am always with you in your hearts. RIP my friend.
