Dear Sybil & family, so sorry to hear of Robert's passing. My mom, Martha Williamson, was married to his Great Uncle Clifford for 39 years. It has been a long time since we have seen Robert but have memories of him when he was younger. May God give you peace and comfort at this time. Mom also sends her love. When I look at Robert's pic, I see his dad, Bobby. He favored him so much. We have lots of great memories of Bobby, Virginia, Wanda, Robert, Judy & Anita. May God bless!!!

I'm very sorry to hear of this news. While working with Robert at the City of Savannah, it was noted how genuine and dedicated of a person he was.
