I have some great memories with Uncle Robert & Aunt Martha ,
I remember when I was young I stayed with them some in the summer. We would wrestle when he got home from work., back then wrestling was a big thing. I remember going to his parents and had a cup of coffee, Oh my! was it strong, I couldn't drink it and never got anymore.
Uncle Robert was a great person he always played outside we all
us kids, he was a hard working man and loved his family unconditionally. You will be missed and we will see you again For you pain free now and with our Lord and savior.
Love you

I will always remember Robert from the CB group. He was a good friend to my husband. Always willing to help anyway he could. We had such great times when we all hung out for dinners, boxing, Moose lodge and just visiting. Condolences to all the family. So sorry for your loss. May you RIP! Knuckle Buster
