So sorry for your loss. We had many fun and memorable times with Robert on round lake. When the power was out for days he organized a neighborhood bbq so no food went to waste. Always on the water we would see the master craft pulling someone on a ski or tube. RIP Robert! You were a fun neighbor!

Robert, I have reflected alot since the news of your passing. I will never forget our get together's at the range, and discussions on the upcoming archery and deer seasons. I will always remember you being there lending your contractors name in helping my client with FHA requirements and the great discussions we had on such a wide range of topics including your building of "It's a Matter of Taste" restaurant. I remember you introducing your sons to me and knowing that you put your heart and soul into your work and into being there for others . Unselfish and noble actions are the most radiant pages in the biography of souls will be my reverent memory of you my friend......... Rick Reid

Robert and I worked together at KW. I didn't know him well, but what I did know is that he was genuine, loyal, heartfelt and truly cared about people.....all the things that make a great friend. If we saw each other at the office he always said "how ya doing buddy" and often we'd have a brief conversation, in fact, just had one recently about the current building market. I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing and wish the family the deepest thoughts, condolences and prayers in the difficult months to come. If there's a silver lining, it's that he left this world doing something that he enjoyed. May that give his friends and family peace.......

Robert has taught me so many things throughout the years I have known him. He taught me to not be afraid to try new things, to seize every day and enjoy every moment, to LIVE life and not just let it pass you by. Robert spoke his mind and you always knew what he was thinking and how he felt and encouraged me to do the same. You could tell Robert anything without fear of judgement. He loved you like family through the good times and the difficult times. His heart was huge...there wasn't anything he wouldn't do for anyone. Robert was the little brother I never knew I needed. A piece of my heart will always be with you Robert. I miss you.

Last ski season was difficult for Robert, he was looking forward to knee surgery but kept enduring the pain and working with the blind skiers. Several times on a Sunday evening when many of the other instructors had gone home after a long day, Robert would volunteer to go out and teach the evening lesson. Condolences to Robert's framily and friends, he will be missed.

May you rest in eternal peace.
