Robert was the kindest person, and such a blessing to our girls and family. We share many fond memories of cooking out and talking sports. Kaiya, Taylor & Brynley will wear the Patrick Mahomes shirts he gave them and always remember his generous spirit. He was like a grandparent to them, and they loved him dearly. He will be forever missed, but never forgotten. Our sincerest condolences to his family.

Robert and I first met in 1967 when we were in second grade. We were best friends through high school. I was the best man at his wedding and he was the best man at my wedding. I hope to celebrate his life and mourn with his family and friends at his funeral. Please let me know. Thanks
