Robert was funny-but not at the expense of others- he was generous and well intentioned. He was an involved loving father and adored felines, especially his “floof” ALF. Robert valued personal freedom and justice, he respected honesty and hard work. Robert was humble, sensitive, fair, knowledgeable, noncompetitive, advocated the importance of education and constant learning for personal enrichment. He enjoyed good food and was open minded to the benefits of other cultures. He was also a good teacher. Robert is very much a success story- especially considering his upbringing. He will continue to bring strength, courage, and joy to his loved ones regardless of circumstance- Robert’s journey is but a beginning, he is no longer in pain and his soul has well deserved peace.
