When I was young, I would always see tio Robert happy & smiling. He was always kind. He was a loving husband to my aunt Alice. A wonderful father to my cousins Alyna & Bobby. That is how I will always remember him. It is sad to know that he has gone to his next home, but it is there where he will reunite with aunt Alice. In that, I find comfort, love, and peace. ~ I love you tio Robert <3 Andrina <3

Robert was the nicest, coolest, most chill dudes to ever walk the Earth. I've known him for 20+ years and never once have I seen him unhappy or angry at anything or anyone. He was very laid-back and a person anyone could get along with. He had a way of always making you feel welcome and always treated me and others' like family. As a father, he raised two amazing children that I am honored to call my friends, but they are family to me more than friends. I know his morals, character, and everything he was has been passed on to Bob and Nina and everyone else that he has touched throughout his life. R.I.P., Robert. You'll be missed, man.

I knew for a few years but since day one he gained my appreciation and respect; I made him know that his legacy won't be forgotten and his presence will be on our minds and hearts, his light will continue in everyone that loves him and his life will continue to inspire us, to enter each day with a generous heart and to serve the call of courage and love. It was a pleasure and a privilege to meet him.
