Robert was a joy to be around! His humorous stories that were true would have you rolling in laughter! Robert loved his church and wanted to always take a stand for our Lord! Continued prayers for Judy and the family!

I want to remember Robert as a kind and dedicated law enforcement officer. Robert was able to share many of his experiences and traits to us younger officers that made us all better in our jobs whether if it was a deputy, police officer, highway patrolman, game warden, or any officer he dealt and worked with. You see, Robert was a Christian man and loved everyone. Rest In Peace and my condolences to the family. Tommy and Robbie Taylor
