Robert was a man that would give his shirt off of his back, he was kind, wise, caring and a brave soul. His hobbies included gardening where he loved to grow pumpkins each year for his grandkids, fishing at his favorite trout hole which he would never reveal, and hunting, but in his later years preferred to sit and watch the deer walk by and enjoy nature.

He loved to build lots of things which included his own camp in which he lived in the summer time. He loved to sing and play guitar for his family and people who he just met. “Farmer Neal”, “Grandpa”, “Duba” will truly be missed by so many. We love and will miss your crazy stories, but we now know you’re flying high with the eagles.
