To one of the finest men in my life that I’ve admired for a very long time. My Uncle Robert is one of the last of the best, as kind and gentle as they come. He made the best catfish fry EVER, and let’s not forget his home made peach ice cream. He will be greatly missed but I’m thankful he is in no more pain or discomfort. Rest In Peace now Unc

Uncle Robert was truly a fine man and great christian influence. He was a quiet man, but his actions spoke volumes about him. He will truly be missed
