Robert was the most colorful, imaginative storyteller of real life events that I have ever known. He got a goat once for his birthday, and his vision of it decades later was as entertaining as a Shakespheare's tale. His humor was contagious, even when it crossed lines, you had to laugh. It was hard to watch his health deteriorate, it affected his mental health as well, and I hope that he is in that place he was searching for so vehemently. Love you Helen, Barry, Jessica, Mikayla and Jayden!
