As one of the Black Jack boys, attending Stanford Wong's Las Vegas parties once a year, I always treasured my time with Robert, or Bootlegger,as his handle was known to us. He was a wonderful guitarist and singer, and he would regale us with songs at the Sunday night gathering, which was the last event before we departed for each years party.
One year I joined Robert in a duet of Jackson, with Robert singing the Johnny Cash part and I, Barfarkel (Mark) singing the June Carter part. What a hoot that was, and what a great memory of the time that Robert and I got to sing together.
He was a wonderful and thoughtful guy. I miss him a lot.
