He offered himself to the line of work that kept food on the table and clothes on our back. He touched the heart of people and left an impact on many lives. He was known as a real people’s person. Always ready to work, gave his all, and never holding anything back. Robert allowed his family to see the world. The greatest truck driver ever known. We can truly say Robert, Bud, and Monk gave his all. That’s what made him who he was. A grandfather, father, husband, son, brother, uncle dad, brother-in-law, and friend. God has always been up and yet is with us. Live on Bud. We will always love and miss you.
