Why should this person be nominated? (What makes nominee unique; why should they be selected the winner of this category?
Robert has always been a gentleman to the seniors. At his job, he quickly helped all those who were frail or in need of assistance. From Jerry Lewis wife to his neighbor's, Robert was available to help with small and large task. When Roberts neighbor passed in his arm chair, Robert contacted the family who lived in New York. Helped with arrangements for transfer and helped console the daughter. Many times Robert assisted with his senior retirement group in setting up chairs, arranging for food, carrying the food, schmoozing those members who might need to feel warm and fuzzy. When his daughter went into Senior Care (that's me) he always supported her volunteer programs by assisting events. Later, he became a care support to his wife during some down time after surgery. With laughter and great love, he took care of his wife and made sure she had stories to share about what most might consider embarrassing moments. A sensitive man who would talk to anyone at the Hospital, he comforted those whose stress levels were in need of kindness. Some how he always gets people to smile and leave feeling a warm sense of community. A kind man who still holds the doors open for people even at McDonalds, Robert is one of the most loving people I know. He cares about the people in the community and shows thoughtfulness to all. A giving man. Robert will makes sure you are fed, gases up in your vehicle and leave him home in a safe manner. No Matter who you are.

My Hero. My Dad. I love you.

Robert has dealt with hard of hearing, epilepsy and emphysema his entire life. Although not scholastically educated, he is an educated man in love, kindness and unselfishness. At age 80, he continues to make those around him feel like a trillion bucks. Especially our seniors and frail friends. Please nominate my father. Thank you. Lynn or as my dad calls me, 'The Great Choo-boo'.
