Robert was a good friend all the way through junior high and high
school. We shared a lot of good times in school and afterward at
McNeese. To Mike and the rest of the family, I offer my
condolences, thoughts, and most importantly, prayers to comfort
you in the loss of Robert. Ray Bowman

It saddens us to hear of Robert's passing far too early. There
will be many sharing memorable stories about times shared with
him, and even more lifting your family up. Peace and God's
comfort to you all at this time. Godspeed Robert.

I remember Robert as one of the nicest guys I knew in high
school. He always had a smile on his face. He was just a good
guy. I know he will be missed.
