Robert always had a smile and a great sense of humor
While I didn't know him well, he was always a great guy to speak with.

Robert always made me smile. I loved his humor, he needed it with the way the Reds have been playing this year:) He would expect no less of me... I am clearly an Indians fan. I will miss him stopping by my office to tell me his latest silly joke, or to discuss the OSU women's basketball recruits. Rest in peace my friend.
