Cherished grandfather of Jessica Mills and Jenna Nicholson, great-grandfather of 7 great-grandchildren and godfather to Barbara Foulsham. Robert was also survived by several nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.

Robert’s career evolved around technology with television and Telephone companies, with this technological knowledge he taught himself how to repair verses replacing numerous items. His motto was “I can fix anything”. Robert always enjoyed holidays and meals with family and good friends, he especially enjoyed Rosanna’s cooking. In his younger years he enjoyed fishing with his brothers, golfing and traveling with his wife Rosanna. Most of all Robert loved his family who were the cornerstone of his life. Robert was a proud Army Veteran; he served his country during the Korean War. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure to have known and loved him.

Robert was very fond of children and always enjoyed their laughter. Because of this, in lieu of flowers we ask for donations to St. Jude’s Childrens’ Hospital @ in his name with the hope for St. Jude’s children can share the same laughter.

Family and friends are respectfully invited to attend a Celebration of Life Service on Saturday March 2nd at 1:00 PM in the Anderson McQueen Funeral Home, 9th Street and 22nd Avenue N., St. Petersburg.
