I truly admired Robert. He was funny, and livened up our Tuesday luncheons with his teasing and good appetite. He seemed a gentle soul, and I truly liked spending time with him and his wife, June. Every time I see a pink Ribbon, he comes to mind. Rest in peace, Robert.

Robert's words of kindness and support will always be remembered by those of us who were his "sisters in pink" on the CSN breast cancer support. He will be missed, even though we never met personally.

I just heard of Robert's passing. He was such a sweet and gentle man. I didn't know him personally, but he helped myself and several others on CSN. My deepest sympathy to his family, he will be missed by us. Rest in Peace Robert and enjoy Heaven!

I just heard of Robert's death. He was a courageous and gentle presence on the CSN breast cancer site. He was always so open and brave about his disease and I believe he helped other men (and women) in the same situation. He is irreplaceable and will be sorely missed. My heartfelt condolences and prayers for his family and friends. Rest in peace Robert; we will miss you.

Robert you were a dear friend to me. You had a big heart! You will be sadly missed. I know you're in Gods kingdom now. No more pain, no more worries, no more sorrow, just peace, happiness, and tranquility. My only regret is I didn't get by to see or check on you and June more often. Please forgive me. Love you.
