He worked the trade from the early 70’s through the early 90’s. Dad’s biggest hobbies were watching his San Antonio Spurs (“whoop there it is!”)and Dallas Cowboys, he was a diehard loyal fan to his teams. Dad LOVED his family with all his heart and enjoyed visiting his grandkids, his family, his brothers and his friends every weekend without fail. He also loved BBQ’ing, dancing, laughing and drinking beer with his favorite music and anyone who wanted to have a beer. Robert lived his life with a smile, even through the rough times. He never allowed for anyone to ruin his shine and was a big teddy bear. Our Dad was a hard worker his entire life but always made sure to put his family first. As Dad would always say “Take it easy Papa!” Robert is survived by his spouse, Maria L.
