Robert loved his family, his mother, Margaret, was his best friend. Mama can do everything. Robert loved his church, West Street Community Baptist Church of Covington, GA., anytime the doors were open and work needed to be completed, Robert would easily agree to be there. He loved people and was loved in return. Robert can be best described as a very hard worker, adorable, kind- hearted and loving young man.
