Robert known as "Sport" to many was an amazing man of his word. Sport was given to him by friends because he did everything as a Sport not a hobby. He was the proud owner for 35 years of R.J. Fencing, now being carried on by his wife and family. He was a grand fighter just as the roosters he loved to raise. He loved to go dancing and would hang out with his family and friends at Rumors and dance the night away. Favorite song: Charanga by Fandango USA. Fishing was his home away from home any chance he could be at the lake fishing he was there. He will be missed dearly and remembered by many. The family would like to thank all the staff at MCH and ORMC Odessa, TX and Westwood Midland, TX, RN Charles and Donna, CNA Naomi. Also, the one he called his guardian angel his grandson-in-law, Anthony Bustillos RN he had saved his life twice and asked him to take care of him to the end.
