  5. CandleImageI remember Robert as a great guy…always smiling, always kind. My pray for comfort for his family.

  6. CandleImageRobert is my first cousin but he was my brother. I’m definitely going to miss him. I remember when we were young and we were walking to school and I didn’t know how to tell time but I didn’t want him to leave me. I told him just wait until 6:89 so I can be ready. He said girl that’s not a time. He laughed so hard at me. I remember that day like yesterday. I love you Robert Jr. You will be missed.

  7. CandleImageHeaven has gained a beautiful soul…Robert always had a smile and a bear hug for everyone. He was always cheerful, kind and ,whenever I would see him out somewhere, we would reminisce about our high school days. At Highlands, he would always take up for the students whom were being bullied and he wanted everyone to be cool with each other. My sincere condolences to all of Robert’s loved ones and may he continue to watch over all of us.

  8. CandleImageRobert was always a Joy to be around, he will be dearly missed, wish we could have all gotten together to spend time together, time is never promised, love your family and love your friends, rest in heaven Robert.

  9. CandleImageBig Rob is what you were adorablely called. Not only because you were fierce on the football field but your heart was so big. In High school you were my dear friend you always made us laugh you had so much Joy in your heart . I remember you had a fake tooth you used to always make it come out and tease me. You got such a kick out of it making me say ewwww . Ironically through the years you became HEB partners with my husband who’s name is also Robert . You will never be forgotten. God bless your spirit and your soul. May this family be blessed and the beautiful daughters you leave behind. Get your rest now friend .
