Zingers and Rock Busters), hunting, woodworking, birding, shooting pool with Stan, raising fish, his 1972 Scout II, hand-feeding rugged mountain chippies, and his cherished dogs.

    Robert deeply loved his family and friends. He is survived by his wife Tracy of Lincoln, sons Sean (Morgan) Schrotberger of Omaha, NE, and Hajin (Skylar Wendel) Honnor of Lincoln, beloved niece Lindsey Hand and significant other Chris Pelletier of Fraser, CO, special friends Brian (Sharon) Gorman of Bennet, NE, and Jim and Lois Wies of Lincoln, granddaughter Eve, grandson Graham, several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

    You fought the good fight, you finished the course, you kept the faith. (Tim 4:7)
