Mr. Boring was a graduate of Merritt Island High School in Merritt Island, FL; after high school, Robert continued his college education at Palm Beach Atlantic College in West Palm Beach, Fl. Robert was often described as a "gentle giant" by those who met him. He had a gift for remembering the small details of people's lives that made them feel seen and important. He made connections with all of the young workers at the local Starbucks and they would jockey for position at the drive-thru window for a chance to talk to "Mr. Robert". For many years he volunteered with the youth programs at Grace Church in Snellville. It suited his servant heart. He was devoted to his wife, sons, and family and will be deeply missed by all who loved him. Robert worked for over twenty years for Verizon Business.
