Not sure what to say?

I had the joy of working with Robert for over 20 years at SHS. Many students benefited from being in his class. The greatest lesson I think he taught was that anything worth doing was worth doing right. That made it especially hard on him when he took a group of coaches to lay block for the visitors stand at SHS. I feel fortunate to have him be a part of my life.

Robert was my carpentry teacher at Starmount and I have many great memories of working on houses and being in the VICA club. He took me under his wing and we did jobs after school and on weekends.What a wonderful mentor he was to me because I had lost my Dad! Praying for the family of this great man.

One of the finest people I have ever known.

Robert was a good man. He was second cousin and last time I saw him was at Terry’s restaurant eating. He didn’t recognize me but when I told him who I was he remembered me. Sorry for your loss.

So sorry for your loss, Prayers and thoughts for All the family. Robert was a very talented man. I know he will be missed. I always remember him joking and laughing, a kind man for sure.

We first met Robert in 1978 when relocating to NC from the Midwest. He quickly indoctrinated us to the way of doing things “correctly”, i.e. the Southern way. He did many kind favors for us over the years. It was always a pleasure to visit at the Williams’ home, when often Robert and Doris would churn some homemade ice cream, and he would share the bounty of his garden. May Robert rest in peace, leaving as his legacy the many houses he built, skills taught to others, and over nine decades...

I don’t know if Robert ever met a stranger he talked to me like he had known me my whole life the first time we met I really liked him I wish we had talked more and rode around more

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

I always look forward to seeing Robert. He was always picking on me trying to get me to argue with him. Just for fun of course. He loved my cornbread. He was so talented in so many things. I will always cherish my wooden box he made for me and my cupboard. Ellen Patricia and Susan I am so sorry for your loss. You all had wonderful parents. I pray God will comfort you through this time of loss.
