Since hearing this news I’ve thought long and hard about all the good times all of us had growing up. From little league together on Teepak to those summer days of pickup tennis ball games at the legion. That eventually turned into classmates and teammates all through high school, pool days at your house with everyone, and some crazy poker games we all had. You were a real friend to all and could always make everyone laugh and smile. Still hard to believe you’re gone and makes me regret not staying in touch after moving away. Until we meet again brother, watch over your loved ones
Robert’s passion for sports was evident in his love for the Chicago Cubs and the Bears. Despite having a friend who was a white sox fan, he enjoyed attending games and cheering on his beloved teams. He had a contagious enthusiasm that made everyone around him excited about the games, and his love for sports was one of the many things that made him so endearing to his friends.

Bert, It’s been a tough week man. But the week has been full of remembering you and all the amazing times we shared just the same.
We roamed the streets of Danville on Huffys and Dynos, playing some form of ball at every opportunity, playing ditch and kick the can at night, and maybe getting in some shenanigans here and there along the way.
Feels like just yesterday a couple of us were crashing through Lindy’s glass door in the wreck room after no rules 21. And jumping off the roof into the pool. Very sorry, Lindy!
I’m so proud of the man you became. Successful at your job, traveling the U.S doing it. You met an amazing woman in Taryn. It was so great seeing you guys together and growing together through thick and thin.
The outpouring of love for you happening right now is the truest testament of the incredible impact you had on everyone you ever crossed paths with. Myself included- GoldenRodBalls lmao. I will miss your dearly, my friend.
