I worked with Robert for over 40 years at Allen Millwork. We saw a lot of changes in the business and shared the good times as well as the bad. He was a big part of the company first going on computers in the early 1980's and keeping us up to date on the constant changes. He had a great mind for numbers and was invaluable managing our accounting department.
Robert got along well with his fellow workers and gained the friendship and respect of those he worked with. This includes me. I will remember the "good old times" at work and will always remember and appreciate him being there for me and the company.
