I had only met Robert once in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. He had came out with our friend Glenn Ross for the IJSBA Jet Ski World Finals, for the weekend that I had the honor of knowing him he was full of life and a great person to be around. He loved what he did in the Marines and had many stories to share of his time in the Marines. He will be missed by all. My heart goes out to his family and friends. He was a great man.
