Robert graduated and received his degree at the University of Kentucky specializing in Information Technology. His aspirations didn't end there. He was an accomplished and professional chef.

He was a beloved and highly respected professional at Digital Matrix Systems, BuyETail, and Lowe's. He exemplified excellence and distinction in every career field he pursued and was a valued and exceptional employee who impacted everyone who came into contact with him.
Robert's passions and interests included golf, music - specifically Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Pink Floyd, and Queen. He had a love for nature, the water, and beautiful sunsets. But most all, his devotion and motivation in life, was to his family and loved ones. He made a profound impact on his wife, saved her and supported her through the most challenging of life experiences. Not only was Robert a loyal and devoted husband, he was a wise intelligent father, a caring loving son to his parents, to his siblings, and to his grandparents.
