Wow, I hadn't talked to Robert in several years, and just stopped by his shop and found out he passed, 4 years ago. :-( Robert was a great guy and a master of his craft, he will be missed! A tragic loss!

My condolences to the Lowery Family. Robert was a fine man, friendly and always able to help me with my odd welding projects.

Lynn and the R&J family
I met Robert 25 yrs ago after moving to Apex from Md.
I left a solid group of people back home but Robert proved to be someone who could replace them all.
His life was an example on how we should treat one another, gain and self interest were not what he was about. He was a rich man in ways few understand and I know my life is less without him.
