Mary and I have been blessed with the deepest of friendship from the Golden/McGuire family for nearly three decades. It was a privilege to be their pastor at McGehee Road Baptist Church. Robert was such a kind, gentle soul. Our hearts, love and prayers go out to Elaine, Cindy. Ed Paul and family.

Robert was a great man to work for and a good friend. He was my first boss at the OMS maintenance facility and it was a pleasure to work with him.
He will be missed!

Robert and I first encountered each other in Mrs. Bessie Bowden's first grade classroom in 1947, We got there and returned home each day on Mr. George Herrin's bus #17. Thus began a journey we took together during our blessed childhood, He became a loyal, supportive friend to both me and my siblings. The boy could "evermore shoot marbles" and handle a baseball; things which so impressed me then. Then he went on to become a much better basketball player than me. He, alone with others taught me humility. He would have relished our getting together to remember but unfortunately that's no longer possible here, We'll not neglect doing it when we next meet. My condolences to all his survivors. He was a credit to all who had a part in his upbringing,
