I attended grade school through high school with Robert (Bobby). I remember him as a kind, quiet and extremely intelligent person. He served his country well and honorably. Thank you, his family for his and your sacrifice. May you be comforted with precious memories.

There are so many wonderful memories and I'm not sure where to start. You were always so talented as a child
So adventurous as an adult. Your nephews thought you hung the Moon and who knows maybe you did. Mom and Dad along with a slew of other family members are waiting with open arms to greet you at Heaven's gate, so you won't be lonely. With God's speed and lots of love go with you. Your Sister

Some of the best memories of high school I have is me and you cruising around Jay's on our motorcycles. I remember the time that we got caught skipping school. We road our motorcycles over to Shawnee and hung out by the airport. I'll miss you but I'll always have the good memories of us and the other guys hanging out together at Jay's and talking about what we were going to do when we left high school. See ya on the other side.

I'll miss your wit and company. Sharing your life experiences of military and the world. I'll miss the deer hunting trips and fun we had.

Love you brother.

Smsgt Greenlee, I will never forget you. It was an honor and privilege to serve with you. You taught me so much about military leadership and leadership in general. Thank you for being there when we needed you. May God bring you home to rest in his kingdom with open arms. I will see you soon my friend. God bless you.
