Robert Wayne Crosswhite, 50, of West, passed from this life on May 14, 2020, in Panama City, Florida.

The family will receive friends from 1:00pm until 3:00pm, Tuesday, June 2, 2020, at Baldwin-Lee Funeral Home in Pearl. A Celebration of Life Service will follow at 3:00pm in the funeral home chapel.

Robert was born April 23, 1970, in Canton, Mississippi. At the age of seven Robert and his family moved to Richland, Mississippi, where he resided for most of his life.

Throughout his life, Robert’s interests spanned the spectrum, but he was truly fascinated by the 1970’s era. His favorite shows included Good Times, Hee Haw, Gilligan’s Island, Bonanza, and other westerns. Robert had a true appreciation for classic country music and the true legends of country, including Patsy Cline, George Jones, Merle Haggard, and Ray Stevens. Robert was also an avid wrestling fan and could often be found in front of the TV, cheering on his favorite performers. Something of a ham, Robert was known as the “Karaoke King” around Jackson, and could be quiet the pool shark. Robert also loved motorcycles and named his sister's bike, "Sister".

Robert’s parents instilled an incredible work ethic in their children, and he was dedicated to his duties with Rayco Industries of Brandon. Robert took pride in what he did and the people he worked with. Perhaps Robert will best be remembered for his amazing ability to make friends with anyone, and to care about each of those friends. His light will continue to shine in the memories of all who were blessed to have him in their life.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Alton R. Crosswhite, and Linda D. Crosswhite.

Survivors include sister, Teresa Storey Perry (Dienk); brothers, John T. Storey (Lorne), Timmy S. Storey (Darla), and David R. Crosswhite (Evelyn); nieces and nephews, Michael Duke, Michaela Duke, Monica Duke, Austin Crosswhite, Kimberly Crosswhite, Whitney Storey, and Jeffrey Storey; five great-nieces and nephews; his two true loves, Suzanne Oakes and his doll Tvelma; special buddies Bubba Skinner and Ricky Rawson; all of his friends who came to Horse Fly Hill to party with him.

A special thanks all who assisted me including Lorne for the floral arrangements and decorations and to Dwight Bethany for officiating the service.

Robert gave us all unconditional love.
