May 9, 1940 - May 24, 2021
Robert Adam Black born May 6, 1940 went to meet his Savior after a brief illness Monday May 24, 2021 at The Tennova Newport Medical Center. Robert being the first born was immediately dubbed as the favorite child, “Number 1” as he would often refer to himself. He jumped into the afterlife feet first with few regrets. Robert loved life and had a lifelong affair with motorcycles, cars, RV’s and Bike Rallies. He was known for his lack pf patience, love of animals and not holding back his opinion. Heck he didn’t even want a funeral; it was a waste of money in his opinion, so he donated his body to Science. Robert would often make comments such as, “You Can’t Win.” But on May 9, 2021 Robert became a winner giving his heart to God. Now his feet have left the pavement of this earth and are walking on the streets of gold. He is doing his thing, telling stories of his life missed by family and friends gone on before him. We believe Robert would leave us with this....Please don’t cry because I’m gone; instead be happy that I was here. (Or maybe you can cry a little bit, after all, I have passed away) and I love you a little bit. Robert Adam Black born May 6, 1940 passed away May 24, 2021, he was 81 years old.
