Robert was an avid sports fan. He enjoyed golf, watching the New York Yankees, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and was a “die hard” Tom Brady fan. Always fascinated with Star Wars, he’d dress up as Darth Vader for Halloween. He appreciated the beauty of his garden, the gentle quietness of his fish, and the melody of his favorite tunes. Flying kites and attending an Air Show with his children was always a highlight for him. Robert will be deeply missed by many.
