Robert was a loving brother, great friend, the best son a parent could ask for, everyone loved him. He was a momma's boy, the first-born son. Robert could light up any room when he entered with his big, beautiful, vibrant smile he always wore on his face. He was an avid fisherman; he would fish sunup till sundown and out fish everyone around him. He enjoyed boxing, playing football, soccer, and baseball with his friends and cousins. He loved to play Fortnite and trade Pokémon cards with his little brother and friends. He loved listening to music, swimming, froggin', building forts, having sleep overs with his friends- he always had a bag packed and ready to go! Robert was ambitious, adventurous, compassionate, self-confident, energetic, fearlessly brave, handsome, creative, strong, and outgoing little man who will be missed dearly by all who were lucky enough to know him. Robert was a great big brother and helper. He loved cooking breakfast in the morning, just like his dad!
