    Just came across the Obit notice. So sad, I have been trying to locate him as we were playmates in Elementary School. Prayers for the family.

    So Saddened w/the news of Robert's passing. My spouse Paul passed away 2-14-19, and I certainly did not expect this about Robert. My sympathies are extended to Leanna, and her family. Leanna, just take one day at a time.. Warm Thoughts, Anita

    Mr. Robert Shane was one of a kind. He was my client and friend for many years. I will miss the cantankerous man. He always gave me a hard time, keeping me on my toes. I loved every minute of it and will miss those phone calls and texts greatly. I could always count on him to make me laugh and to give solid business advice. I am forever thankful for his timeless friendship and his trust. I will miss him very much!!!

    Leanna and Family we want you to know how sad we are to learn of Roberts passing . I have so many great memories working with Robert and you all...where Robert helped so many of our insurance clients get their. lives back to normal with your Steamatic Services . Robert taught me so much about restoration and I will cherish the memories we made helping so many SE Texans after the damage caused by Hurricane Ike .
    We will miss Robert . We pray the Lord will help you all to get through this time of grief and sorrow as we all remember the great memories we all have of Roberts fulfilling life !

    Leanna and family, my heart is heavy hearing of Roberts unexpected death. I remember as a kid staying at your home and running around your shop chasing and running from Robert. He was always super funny and so loving. Those crawfish boils were always amazing too! He has left a significant impact on my life as a kiddo growing up. He will truly be missed. We love you and are in prayer for your family during this journey ahead. With love, Amber

    They really threw away the pattern when our Robert Shane came into this world! There has never been nor ever will be another like him. A jokester personified.! But an absolutely great husband, daddy, friend and all other hats he wore. We will miss him so very, very much. Deepest love to my classmate of 12 years; my wonderful, loving, funny, lifelong friend - his wife, Leanna.. Many thoughts and prayers to the children and grandchildren he adored! Get ready Heaven. He's coming in! Until we meet again, we will never forget you, Robert!
