I don´t think I ever saw Robert that he didn´t have a big smile on his face. I believe we will here him say HERE WE GO JACKETS HERE WE GO at Oxford games even though he will not be their in person but he will in spirit.

So very many funny memories of Robert and I working at Sunny King together in sales. You knew he was in the building because he had a presence. that you could hear a long way. He was kind and always spoke lovingly of his wife June and daughter Leslie. I did not know he had grandchildren but am sure they witnessed his love for family and Christ. He was a good man.

Robert was one of our vendors at Food World. He was such a delight and always smiling and happy man. My prayers are with the family. God bless you.
