At 9:15 pm on Sunday, July 8, 2012, Arthur Roman Robért, Jr. went Home to Glory to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, whom he loved dearly and served faithfully throughout his lifetime.
Robbie, as he was called during his military service, was a U.S. Air Force veteran, having proudly served from 1951 to 1955, stationed at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque. He was an electrician in the 93rd Fighter Interceptor Squadron.
He retired from Columbus-McKinnon Corp. after 40 years of service and had served as a volunteer at Johnston Memorial Hospital where he gave his time for 3500 hours.
He was a faithful member of Damascus Road Baptist Church.
For 48 years, he taught me how to live; for the last week and a half of his life on earth, he taught me how to die.
I never heard one complaint or saw a single sign of distress.
My Dad...Such grace.
His "favorite" daughter, Dawn, says:
So thankful for the privilege I had to care for my dad over the years. Thankful that not only did he know how to live his life unselfishly thinking of others, but also in death, being concerned about Mom's welfare. One of the memories I will cherish forever is the night we spent at the hospital with him, listening to him pray for each of us by name, for a specific need. I am celebrating his life here, and rejoicing in the eternal life he is now enjoying.
Neighbor & Friend Jeff Hockett: "I don't mean any disrespect to Mr. Art, but he always reminded me of a grown up Dennis the Menace." Dad would have loved that description.
