Years ago (more years than I care to remember) I was Robert's and Glenna's Sunday school teacher at First Baptist, Madisonville, KY. Robert was always so kind and gracious. My prayers and heartfelt sympathies are with his family during this time. Herb Pritchett

Hadn't seen Robert since early 1980's. I reached out to him a few years ago but never connected.

Robert a I had so much fun together as kids. Running around all the greenhouses, hiking through the woods south of Homewood going to "turtle land"; walking downtown to Ireland's Hobby store or the Capital Theater; always busy with N-gauge model railroad, GI Joes and Johnny West; sleepovers, Mad magazine, monster movies, the brand-new Saturday Night Live; loved his Mom and his Dad and his Country Squire station-wagon with eight-track easy listening music.

In 1973 I went with them to their family vacation home on South Manistique lake. Journeyed to the Grand Sable Sand Dunes and Lake Superior. Water skiing and swimming. What fun.

He was a big fan of Simon and Garfunkel & John Denver. He loved steam engines and trains, model rockets and civil war history. He was in Indian Guides and Cub Scouts!
