Robert was an aficionado of videogaming – vintage to modern, a collector of rare, eccentric books: Peace of Mind was his favorite bookstore. He was inspired by the full spectrum of art and science – from Salvador Dali, Cryptozoology, Ancient Civilizations, fossils and Geology, and the medicinal potential of mushrooms. He showed pigs and was a member of the Sperry 4-H and FFA. His favorite TV shows were Ancient Aliens and Ghost Adventures. Japan and its unique culture and food were a true and profound inspiration to Robert. He was a connoisseur of cheese --- a 100% Real Cheesehead – from brie to sharp cheddar, he loved them all and had a never-ending capacity for CHEEZ-ITs. Robert’s love of music was deep, soulful, and beyond his years. Ultimately, Robert was a collector – of love, family, friends, words, pets, treasures, laughs, and all the beauty and mysteries of the universe and beyond.
