After graduation, Robert attended the Connelly School of Mechanics. He was a hardworking man, even as a child he delivered papers for Mr. D.D. He was once a laborer at St. Moritz until he decided to start his own company, Linnen & Ramsey Hauling.
Robert loved his children and family tremendously. He enjoyed socializing and hanging out with his family and friends. Vacation time was his favorite, he looked forward to his annual Miami trip with the fellas. Like most, he was an avid Steelers fan, he cherished going to the games, to eat and drink with his significant other, Tenika. Robert played football himself during his high school years. His hobbies included fishing and fixing cars. He coined the phrase “Don’t take no wooden nickels, and don’t give none either.”
