He grew up working in his parents’ upholstery shop before joining the Aiken County Sheriff’s Department where he was a sergeant, and shift supervisor. After retiring with 10 years of service he opened his own business with his wife, D & R Estates. Robert was a “Jack of all trades”, he oversaw all maintenance at his church, East Side Baptist, and spent a year in Afghanistan training military police. He started the Bible mission “1+1”, and was able to donate over 4000 Bibles all over the world, it was his passion. Robert was the most generous man you could find, and was known to have never met a stranger. He loved his dogs, Starsky and Hutch, his church, and he especially loved his children, grandchildren, wife, and his entire family.
