What can you say about a guy like Robert. He was not one to toot his own horn, except in the band at Mission High, so let us give it a shot: A devoted father. A loving husband. Unsung war hero. The tireless provider for everyone he cared about. Concrete solid grandpa. Protector of Pontiac St. Master recycler. Relentless trimmer of hedges. Eagle eyed informer of meter maid proximity. Town crier of expired inspection stickers. Recliner runner up on Jeopardy. Statesman of the obvious. Pusher of buttons. Stasher of snacks. Sharpest of dressers. Teller (and reteller) of tales. Risqué robe wearer. A man amongst men. Robert was a builder. On his hands and knees, day in and day out. Creating from the ground up, structures that will stand the hardest tests of time. His strongest work is evident in the family, the friends, and the community he built. Yes, he was all of these things. But we always think of him as our Dad. Our Guy. And he will never, ever, be forgotten. We all will always measure ourselves up to an immeasurable man.  We’d say they threw away the mold, but we all know you wouldn’t let them. GNGB Robert. 143.
