Robert was born on Sept 27, 1962, at Duke Hospital in Durham, NC. 

He started working in tobacco at 9 yrs old. He was a hardworking man who loved taking things apart and putting them back together. He had a saying that if he couldn't fix it he'd break it so no one else could. 

He worked at Precision Tune for 17+ years and then he purchased a Snap-On franchise for 15+ years and briefly operated as S&K Tools for 2yrs before becoming a licensed Home Inspector (Southern Living Home Inspection). He and Jamey loved traveling to the Outer Banks, and the mountains. He loved NC. He was kind, selfless, humble, and had a great sense of humor. He loved his family. He would do anything he could to help someone. He met his longtime love and wife Jamey Richards in 1983 and they got married in 1987 in Dillon, SC. 

Robert is survived by his wife of 34 yrs, Jamey Richards.
