I will never forget all the times that he came to see my husband and I. Or the times we talked on the phone. I'll always have the memories when we went fishing. Most of all I'll never forget get when I first met you when I was 21. We had some good times that's for sure. Thank you for being my dad. I will never forget you. I will always think of you wanting no bake cookies. And you also stood up in my wedding and gave me away. Love always, Tom and Fran Hale

I remember fishing with Robert one night under one of the bridges in Fort Atkinson. Of course we both fell asleep. got woke up by one of the bells ringing on the pole. So when I'd see Robert I'd say was that the bell. But, the best memory was when we worked at Spacesaver back in the 90's. In, October went to Eagle River for a fishing trip. One. night 4 of us were going out to the bar. On, the way there we seen a Doe standing along side the road. We,told Robert we seen it wink at him. So, that must mean she liked him. But,Robert knew we were just having fun with him. He could take it as well as dish it out. He, was a very good friend and I'm going to miss him dearly.
