Robert was married to Barbara Turrentine Bullard of Durham, NC at his time of death.
Robert retired from Central Carolina Bank and Trust Company after 35 years of service and later went on to work for Durham Public Schools until his health began to decline.
Robert thoroughly enjoyed going deep sea fishing off the coast of North Carolina with his friends, watching the Dallas Cowboys play NFL football and the Duke Blue Devils. He looked forward to spending time with his family and many childhood friends. He found joy visiting the sick members of his family, church and community. His laughter and humorous personality were contagious for anyone who graced his presence for only a few minutes. He loved introducing his children and grandchildren to anyone who came around, even if he did it multiple times while you were in his presence.
