After graduating from college, Robert went on to follow in his father’s footsteps and became a security officer. In 2009 Robert fulfilled his dream and became a police officer working for the Prince George’s County Police Department in Maryland.
Robert was a big family man. As a son, Robert did all he could to make his parents proud. He enjoyed bringing a smile to his mother’s face and playing video games and watching sporting events with his dad. As a brother, Robert made it known how much he loved his siblings. He loved when his older sister came to visit because she would always bring movies for them to watch. To his younger brother, he was a mentor, counselor, coach, and best friend. He was a loving uncle who enjoyed buying gifts for his nephew and nieces playing with them and making them laugh. Everyone who came in contact with Robert knew what his family meant to him.
