He told the best stories, even if it was the same ones over and over again. Robert was half carpenter and half artist: he was born to be a contractor. He was always competitive, especially around birthdays and Christmas times: Robert gave the best gifts. His kids were foremost in his mind; for Robert life was all about spoiling family. Of course he always led with his heart; one of the few who never lost the art of letter writing. Spare times found him with a rod in his hand; if it swan Robert tried to catch it. Or he’d be jamming to the sounds of Pink Floyd and AC/DC and suffering with the Eagles.
He is survived by his children, Victoria, Deana and Robert and his grandson, Owen who was teaching to fish; and he has two more grandchildren on the way; he is also survived by his mother, Dorothy Leonard and his father, Lester Cotton, and his sister Jennifer Cotton.
