With a heavy heart I’m sad to hear that cousin Robert passed. Growing up in my teenage years I learned a lot from Roger and Bob. Putting up hay and crops, there’s nothing the two boys couldn’t fix! Oh boy, the lunches Aunt Frances would have after haying all day! So many fond memories in the 60s! God be with you and family! Lyle Wiezorek

So very sorry for your loss. Robert was such a nice man. He has been a great friend and neighbor to Frank & Ramona. Sincere sympathies go out to you.
