Robert was a devoted husband, father, and Papa. He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He enjoyed traveling with his wife, Dollie aka “Mickey”, and group of lifelong friends to destinations all around the world. He was a natural entrepreneur, from pig farming, land development, and road boring, his success left a legacy for his children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren to admire and strive for. He set a great example as a man, father, and husband. When he talked, people listened. Robert was a devout Rains Wildcat fan, rarely missing a game or track meet over the last 30 years, he was no “fair weather fan”. Between his wife’s cooking and his grandkids, he had a hard time saying no.
The family would also like to express our thanks and gratitude to caregivers Gayla Sparkman and Marissa Spinks. Donations may be made in honor of Robert to the Freedom Church of God food pantry.
