Robert was such a sweet guy. We went to Enka High School together, class of 1972.
Was just thinking about him a couple of days ago. Wondering where he was and how he was doing. Sad to hear he had passed. Rest easy, my friend.

Robert was my Unit Manager when we opened Avery/Mitchell. He was a good boss, I will always remember him making us chili when we got our unit finished and ready to receive inmates.
My condolences to his family, may God comfort you as you grieve.

Robert and I worked together for many years. He was a friend who always had a smile even on tough days. My prayers are with his family.

Haven't seen Robert in many years but we had some great times together. Ill never forget his laugh and always on the optimistic side of life.
I know you are smiling down today and finally that sweet peace you and I had spoken about. See you soon my friend.
