Today was a beautiful day in the Ozarks - bright blue sky, low humidity, temperatures in the low 70s....a perfect day for the AIDS Walk. I enjoyed our talk today; but it would been so much better if you would have been there too. Love & miss you so much, Beau.

Robert was an amazing student. He sang so well in choir-SingingSailors-he truly deserved an award but for some reason I missed the chance to give him one. He also made our band better by playing alto clarinet. I will always remember him for being a class act and a STAR! - Mr. P.

Ah Robert, always fast with his legs, with a smile on his face and a nice comment for race days that went poorly. I gentle sole that we all loved then and think of now. How we wish he had more time to share his wit, and talent with the world.

I remember Robert as this vibrant, funny popular person that was so involved with everything! I hope + suspect as he opened up his life to align with his heart that he found some peace and happiness. ; )

Robert, was one of those special people that was years ahead of his time. He always had a kind word to say and a thoughtful way of dealing with others. He was very intelligent, funny and talented in many areas of his life. He ran a mean 880 race and lived life with a big heart :)

I remember watching Robert sail through the air and run like the wind in track. He made it look so dang easy. I also loved watching Robert in the drama productions. Mostly I remember him being so nice to everyone and that infectious smile...you couldn't help but smile back.

High school can be a time when many students choose a chameleon life--but not for Robert. I'll always remember him as one of the most authentic & genuine guys of my SSHS career.Smart, passionate, athletic and fun. He was kind & open to all. His spirit lives on, Sue Touchette Aust

I remember Robert in Singing Sailors! WOW, so long ago. But I do remember he was always smiling and happy. Someone you always wanted to be around because he was such a beaming light.

Robert and I raced against each other for class president in '81. The better man won. He actually had a plan for the (yet to be developed) grassy park behind the school! It was his touch that made it possible. God Bless Robert.

The loss of a loved one is all to often something that we have to deal with. It is even more difficult when they are young. There have been many dear friends in our class that we have had to mourn, and Robert is one of these. I pray for continued healing and treasured memories. Blessings to all of y
