12/30/1950 – 06/22/2018
Robert fought the beast known as melanoma for three years with everything he had. He was surrounded in loving support by his family and an amazing group of friends who never for one second let him think he was facing this alone.
His indomitable spirit inspired thousands online to LIVE in spite of surmounting odds, in spite of what life throws your way, and in the face of your impending death. His fight, which he shared fully with his followers on social media, inspired many to go to the dermatologist for skin checks, to have funny looking places looked at on their bodies, and to be more vigilant about protecting themselves and their children from the harmful effects of UV exposure.
Robert leaves behind a legacy of courage and we miss him dearly.
