Robert attended Norfolk Public Schools as a child. He worked at Haynes Furniture Company for over 5 years. He later worked as a delivery driver for both the Coca Cola Bottling Company and Pepsi Cola Bottling Company. He was a very active man with a love for bowling, basketball, football, and jogging. Robert remained faithful to his daily gym workout well into his 80th year of life.
Robert was a great family man and a loving father. He had a love for music and loved to sing. Robert sang with two local music groups: The Tear Drops and the Sheiks. They would perform at many venues in the Tidewater area. His friends and family will always remember him as a man of few words, but full of wisdom.
The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart and saves such as have a contrite spirit.
