    I am so very sorry to hear of Robert’s passing. I prayed for God’s healing for Robert and will continue to pray for you and the family. We go way back to all the CYO dances at St. Louis back in the 70’s. He and JD were always creating some much fun and they could really dance! Huff and I had a great connection. We shared a love of DJing and having that connection with the people we play for. He was sure a good hearted person and would give anyone in need the shirt off his back. Vicki, you and Huff were such a good couple, great parents and grandparents. Huff was really in his element when he was with those grandkids and I now they will miss him. Please let me know if you need anything – help, a shoulder, a visit. Love you! RIP and fly high Huff!

    I knew Robert as a teenager when I worked at the Swinging Chick. He and I shot many games of pool together and played Foosball. Our paths crossed many times as adults too. I always thought a lot of him, as he was a true friend. He will be missed by so many but I smile when I picture him with his brothers that he loved and missed so much. Fly high Huff! Til we all meet in heaven again…..
