This news saddens me.  Robert and I went to one of our high school dances together.  He was funny and sweet.  Sincerest condolences to his family.

Robert was a hell of a great guy. We did a lot of things together and when the 15 year reunion came around, it was Robert that tracked me down in Monroe to tell me. When we met at the reunion, it was like he never changed, he still looked the same. We have lost another great Cub, and the world is sad for that.

What sad news about a truly good person.  He was always kind and gentle and I cannot think of any time I ever saw him with anything less than a great countenance.  His family must miss him dearly and my heart goes out to them.  R.I.P. Robert.

I am saddened to hear about Robert.  We grew up in McKay Ward together.  The Gee's were good people and that certainly included Robert.  He was a nice guy.  My thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones!

I was shocked and saddened when I saw Bob's obituary. It's been awhile since I have seen him but when we did meet it was like we had seen each other yestersay. My prayers are with his family.
