I enjoyed working with Robert many years ago. He was kind and had a great sense of humor. Robert fed my beloved dog, Fracas, for a week while I was on vacation. His good nature and good deeds will always be remembered. My deepest condolences are extended to his friends and loved ones. May he rest in peace.

Dean and I were lucky to know Robert. Years ago we all went on a nice trip to Wilmington to see the historic battleship. We also used to love going with Chris and Robert to Bingo. Always had a great time. He helped us move and took care of my dog when I needed it. Great man, and he is missed by all who knew him. Love you Brother. Doug Moses

It was a pleasure working with Robert as an investigator and then working for him. He was a good supervisor, but more than that he was a good friend. I remember when my Mother passed his concern for my pain was so sincere. I will always remember Robert as the thoughtful, kind, and caring man that he was, a man I was fortunate to call my friend.

You will remain in my thoughts and prayers.

Chris, I am so sorry for your loss! It is just unimaginable and I wish I was there to give you a hug! Robert was such a special guy and I enjoyed working with him at ESC. I will never forget when Robert asked me if I remember Chris Musslewhite. I laughed hysterically and said "that is one of my brothers, we grew up together!" Chris, you are in my thoughts and prayers during this time and there is nothing that we can say to make it easier. But just know that you have wonderful years of memories and those will help you through each day as you heal and mourn the loss of your friend and partner. God bless you Chris!

Chris, as I had been getting to know Robert at the reunions of some fraternity brothers, he mentioned you several times to me. I was glad to know he had you in his life. I am deeply saddened by his passing and my heart goes out to you and all others who were close to him.
