    This is pretty devastating news. I am very sorry for our loss because he was unique and impacted everyone he came in contact with, now we will all miss out on what he had to offer the world. I lived with him and my sister for a couple of years and had many many conversations with him regarding, well, everything. He had an insight that was outside the box and taught me that there is always another perspective other then the one right in front of you. Rest in peace brother. My condolences to his Mother and his family. Please notify me when the celebration of life ceremony will take place.

    This is definitely the worst news of this year for me. Robert was like a brother to me. He meant alot. His family was also a second family. He has a unique way about him that is irreplaceable! He was loved by MANY and his memory will definitely live on.

    I am shocked to hear the passing of Robert. My condolences to his mother. May your memories of your son console you in your pain.There is one thing that really stands out in my memory of him is how he would stop by our house to check on a family member while we were out of town.And he didn’t speak any English,but Robert made the effort on his own to stop by to see if everything was ok. Robert was a very likable person.May he rest in peace.

    I’m going to be honest, he was a unique person and would have been a great father, but some of us could not get his child like personailty. I learned now that all of our past makes us who we are today, if it is not sad, happy, lost, unique, hateful, lovable or whoever we may grow to be. We are who we are and I am sorry that Robert never found his true self to find the wonderful parts of life. He was a good person and I am truly sorry.
