    Sincere condolences to the Reed family. Robert was a great friend and co-worker. I loved him like family and am devastated by the loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

  3. I will miss his laugh the most. And his text and calls just to see how I was doing after I was no longer working at same location. Will never forget how happy he was telling about dog he rescued and the smile I got when I gave him a squeaky toy to welcome that fur baby home. He had a very kind heart and will be terribly missed.

  4. Robert will be missed dearly. He was a great co-worker that always made you laugh and always had a good story to tell. He always spoke about the love for his family and his dogs. My condolences to the family. GOD BLESS you all………

    We would like to extend our sincerest condolences to Robert’s family and friends. We will miss his infectious chuckle and occasional glare over his glasses when discussing intricate matters. Our conversations also often turned to his German Shepard dogs and our rescue. We will keep his family, friends and pets in our prayers during this difficult time for all that knew him.

    Godspeed Robert, rest in peace.
