He was a longtime member of St. Henry Catholic Church. Robert enjoyed being outside fishing or crabbing. He loved to cook and entertain for his family whenever he could and often loved to dance especially to cajun music. Robert like to refer himself as a doctor since he fixed his chicken’s leg with a q-tip and would also let you know that he had a PhD… a post hole digger. He loved the Dallas Cowboys and even once tried out for the team in the 80’s. Robert had a wonderful and joyful soul and will be deeply missed by everyone who knew and loved him.
