Departed the planet in the early evening of October 15, 2013. He was surrounded with amazing love by his wife Susan, of 38 years, his son Todd and only a few of the many people who engaged in the thrilling ride that was his life in Art, Music and Philosophy. Robert is survived by his granddaughter Avalon, brother Keith and many loving nieces and nephews. A celebration of his life will be held at 7 p.m. on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 15th Street Presbyterian Church, 1701 15th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20009. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Washington Home and Community Hospice.

Susan, I'm so sorry to hear the sad news. I saw the article in the Post yesterday. He did well with his art. Uncle Bob and Aunt Gerry would be proud. My condolences, Cousin Mary Young.
