Robert was preceded in death by his parents, wife Cleo who he joined on Valentine’s Day, one brother and three sisters.
Dad, you were a man of few words – of which he would say “give me a minute”, “everything is good” and “take a break”. You will be lovingly missed. Dad was able to stay at home his last years, which was his wish under the thoughtful and loving care of his son Robert Jr. Your siblings thank you.
It was dad’s wishes to not have visitation or a service. A private family memorial will be held at a later date. A memorial fund has been established in his name.
