    I will miss you dearly cousin Robert. You were a pivotal part of our family and I always enjoyed seeing you at our Valencourt reunions. You were a man of God and loved to share your faith. You were such a joy to be around and always made us laugh with a joke. I can only be comforted to know that you are safe in the arms of Jesus. Sending hugs to Misty, Jillian and Mia. May God give you comfort during this difficulty journey without husband and father. I love you all.

    To you all of you who are broken-hearted and sad, remember that, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” I pray you will feel God’s love and comfort throughout this time of sorrow. I know he will be sorely missed and it feels like his light has gone out, but it has not. What a joyful reunion there is for Rob now. I send my love and prayers.

    Such a wonderful man of God who loved his family and his country. He is no doubt basking in the light of Jesus right now. Praying for Misty and the girls especially as they navigate this challenging time without him. He will certainly be missed.

    I got to know Rob, and Misty, as we watched our kids grow up together at church. I worked with Rob in middle school and VBS and he was always a favorite of All the kids.
    Rob was one of the finest men, and kindest, I’ve known. He has left a beautiful legacy in his amazing wife and two daughters❤️ We will miss you!
