  8. Aunt Daisy, Michael, and Shaneal

    We cannot begin to express our feelings of loss in the passing of your husband and father. While in his presence, he stood larger than life to us all, as a mentor and a role model to our entire family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time and always. And may God anoint each of you with that same strength as Uncle Robert carried throughout his life.

  9. I had the distinct pleasure of serving with Bob as an officer of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Local 7. Not only was Bob a fine craftsman, he was a role model. He served the membership with honor and integrity. Through the years, Bob and Daisy became good friends. He was a man of courage and conviction but also compassion. He always called me “Stevie” and I truly miss his friendship and wonderful sense of humor. Rest in peace my friend, Steve and Maryvonne Cleveland
