He offered himself to the line of work that kept food on the table and clothes on our back. He touched the heart of people and left an impact on many lives. He was known as a real people’s person. Always ready to work, gave his all, and never holding anything back. Robert allowed his family to see the world. The greatest truck driver ever known. We can truly say Robert, Bud, and Monk gave his all. That’s what made him who he was. A grandfather, father, husband, son, brother, uncle dad, brother-in-law, and friend. God has always been up and yet is with us. Live on Bud. We will always love and miss you.

Anthony’s one of a kind laughter and sense of humor is what set him apart and endeared him to all who loved him. His playful and creative ability lead to fun filled times at home around the kitchen table, cruising down a back road, camping or anywhere he would get called to be at. Elvis, Superman, Star Wars and the Pittsburg Steelers were his passion that he shared with everyone and were the richer for having done so. His life although brief was filled with love and compassion and he remains our father and mother’s son, our loving brother and uncle, loyal cousin and trusted friend. He walks now with our mother and departed family and is sharing his laughter once again.
