Angie and I are saddened by your passing. My childhood memories include your love for motorcycles, your library of VHS, and that you introduced me to “Cops” on TV. You were fun to spend time with during our short trips to Knoxville! My prayers go out to my Tennessee family...especially Aunt Kitty! I love you all! God Bless! From your nephew, Roger Hoofman

Robert was the kind of person who when you met him you liked him. He was our brother-in-law, but in truth more a brother: he was/is the rare diamond in a field of stones. We are going to sadly miss him dearly. Just knowing he was "there" in Tennessee with family caring for him was comforting.
Dear Robert, we love you and miss you and you can never be replaced; God only made one of you.
Take care Kim and family and God bless you and keep you,
Uncle Larry and Aunt Kathy

Sweet Papa ❤ You are going to be missed. Luna will miss running to your room to sleep on your floor and watch cartoons with you. I'm going to miss hearing you holler to us everytime we came over. We love you, Pops. I hope you're enjoying your new wings and holding hands with our Mow again up there.
