We had the privilege of meeting Robert a few times. Most recently my youngest son met him at Charlettes in Danville with his girlfriend, and her friends. Mary Hoss his girlfriend was interviewed by him. My son came home, and said mom that guy that does the weather interviewed us on t.v. today, we'll be all soon. We all watched it. My son basically tried to hide from him. LOL. We also met him at the Danville Dans Game awhile back too. He will be remembered. My Classmate Mike Cleff had the privelage of working with him too. He will be missed.
