  4. Robert Robertson was one of the best brother-in-law’s a person can have I can’t even think of words that will say how much I love him and we’ll miss him thank you for always being there for me and my children

  5. Uncle Rob, you & Aunt Sylvia took me in & loved me like I was one of your own. My best child hood memories were with you, the road trips to Tennessee, Jellystone park, fishing, barbeques in the back yard. You taught me some of the best life lessons. I remember being young and racing with you, I would get mad & cry, because you wouldn’t let me win. You looked me straight in the eyes and said, “no one is going to let you win in life, you have to push for it & when you do win you will appreciate it so much more.” Those words will forever be with me. You will be missed dearly, I love you.

  11. I just loved to hear you say hello “ Cousin “with that smile even in your voice. RIP , Turk, we all love you , but God Loved You more.

  12. My father Robert Lee Robertson, dedicated his life to his wife and his children. He was a faithful husband and a great provider. He did great work in the community as a football coach and being the local plumber. One of the best feelings growing up in my community is how people spoke so highly of my father that’s why I didn’t mind being called the plumber’s daughter. Thank you Dad for teaching me that I’m worthy of real love and true happiness, my morals, character, and everything good about me. I look back now, I realizes that you were my biggest vocal supporter. I can’t imagine life without you, and I will always love you.
    Love the plumber’s daughter 😘❤️🙏
