Robert lost his battle with prostate cancer, and we lost a friend of 30 years. When I think of what Robert leaves with us, I’m reminded of jazz musician Anton Schwartz’s thoughts about his legacy (modified for Robert):
“When I’m gone, I’d like to have the same quality as a great evening of music(storytelling): still reverberating out into the ether.”
Robert will reverberate for many years to come.

I was invited to a Power Speaking dinner about 20 years ago, I think it was New Years. Met a lot of people including Robert. We, my wife and I were give a fish tales cassette tape. It was First Kiss. We played it for years in the car on Road trips. My daughters loved it. My oldest was about three when she first heard it and my youngest started at about six months. They were mesmerized. Many of those trips were to Oregon. Ironically where Robert took his last breath. Robert thanks for all of those nice Road Trips.
