Robert loved his son “Duck” very much. His son was his world from the moment he was born. Even while fighting his demons, family was the most important to him.

Robert’s goal was to make everyone around him happy, even in his darkest times. He had a contagious smile that brightened the room and made people easily love him the moment they met him.
