    Robert where do I begin, sir you exemplified what it was to be an awesome person. Your smile was brighter than the sun. How you touched thousands of lives with your smile greetings and all out excitement when you saw somebody. Your outlook on life and living in the moment made everyone around you automatically have a great time and you always made everybody around you special.

    What you did for the car culture in the southeast is nothing but amazing he helped start and build one of the elite car clubs in the southeast. And he helped build the elite car show and event in the southeast that happens every year in steel in motion. Everyone who showed up always looked for that kid in the big sombrero just to say high and get that smile.

    In the end Robert thank you for letting me call you friend it was an honor.

    Been neighbors of the Ingle family on Martin Road since 1991. Bob and Shirley were wonderful neighbors and beautiful people. It was so sad when Shirley passed so early in life, and now their son Robert has passed early too. Robert followed in the path of his parents in being a sweet soul who touched many in his earthly journey. Prayers for Robert’s wife, daughter, and father, and hope that many fond memories and God’s assurances will comfort all his family and friends. Sincerely, The Fowler Family

  • Natalie,
    You may not remember me, but I worked with you at cryovac then later with Robert. I am heartbroken to hear of Robert’s passing. He was always so pleasant and jovial ❤💔 Always telling me about you and Lily. I have and will continue to pray for you both(and his other family and friends). He was definitely one of the good ones!
    Sending love to you both!
