Robert loved all things Special Olympics. He participated in golf, bowling, track, skiing and skating. The Polar Plunge was one of his favorite outings and he was always trying to recruit others to participate. He was a daredevil and thought bungee jumping was so fun. The Jazz were his team and he could be heard coaching from the stands and his front room.
Robert was one of a kind and will be missed by many. Robert loved his family and would tell stories from his childhood regularly. Special thanks to Mel Siulua, Robert’s FTC staff, Tifani Jefferies and Greg Burr, for their love and support.
He is survived by his wife, Patricia Ruth Greenland, his siblings; Ruth Aileen Makin (Keith, deceased), Richard G.
