    My Uncle Robert â€" you were a father to me when I had none, and a mentor for working with my hands and mind. Your stare alone scared me to death when it was needed, while your masculine voice and wisdom were my inspiration of how to transition into the man I became. I know you died of a broken heart following the loss of your true love of over 40yrs. Now you get to hold her in your arms once again in God’s eternity. We miss you already Uncle â€" stay frosty! My sincerest condolences to my awesome cousins Chad and Wendy, - Troy

    When I read the obit it reminded me that Robin had a race track in his room on SunSet and he would tear apart the cars a make new chasis that he put together from model, or hot wheel cars.
