The love and support Robert has shown to his grandkids was instantly noticeable. The endless support showing up to far away lacrosse games in college for Tucker. You could see the passion he possessed to encourage and love his grandkids, wife, family, and friends. From his smile to his wittiness to his genuine character. You will be missed by many. You will be dearly missed by me, my friend.
