    Robert was a great friend to all of us at New Hanover. He always made everyone feel special and had a smile and greeting no matter who you were. He also loved sharing his family with us who you could tell meant so much to him. We miss him greatly, but do carry wonderful memories of a good friend.

    Robert and I are friends from our days at Leland High School. Each year we have a class reunion to catch up and renew friendships. This year it will be lonesome without him. He was a very special person.
