He was a very dedicated, creative and hard working man. Robert could build just about anything...and he did...he built their home that they loved and lived in for 30 years. Pat and Robert were the epitome of young love. They both knew they were meant for each other as soon as they met. Their first date was going to a Church service together. Robert and Pat created the most beautiful foundation of Christ in their marriage. Every morning began with a prayer at the kitchen table and devotion throughout their life together. Because of this, their children , grandchildren , and great grandchildren witnessed what a Godly marriage should look like.

Robert was a man of few words, but when he said something, everyone would listen.

Most people thought Robert was very put together, and he was, but when he was around his family, he was so silly with the kids. Robert absolutey loved to play jokes and pranks on his kids and grandchildren every chance he had but he also loved putting balloon animals on his head, playing games and putting smiles on everyones faces.

He also loved teaching the children and grandchildren so many skills and some of the most fond memories we had were spending family time in the mountains for numerous Thanksgiving holidays.

The family also loved to gather two nights before Christmas at Gram and Papa's house for the annual "Christmas Eve Eve Celebration",Christmas Eve morning the family would stay in their pajamas, eat breakfast together and open presents. It was incredible!

One last thing that stood out the most is how Robert was always the one who prayed over our meals and the incredible impact his faith had on every one of us.

Robert was a loving husband, an incredible Papa, a strong brother and a faithful friend who led our family so well.
