Through the darkness of losing this dear man of God, my wish is that Vicki and family will have “light” from the many memories and legacy that remain from Robert. Robert was a fine servant, giver of much, and a devoted family man. The Perritt family was very fortunate to have Robert as an example of God’s faithfulness and life everlasting. My heart hurts for your loss but know as a believer that Robert imprint on your lives will be forever lasting. May you know that friends care deeply and send their love.

Bro. Robert was my youth pastor, and his impact was tremendous. I hold onto such dear memories of the hours we spent together with his family during youth musicals, mission trips, fellowships at the Perritt house, and Bro. Robert’s ever-present smile. I am grateful that he allowed God to work through him in sharing his love for music and his passion for teaching God’s Word to teens. Love to the Perritt family.

Bobby and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. After just spending a week with my dad hunting, this news cuts deep and demands a pause to give thanks to a Almighty God for my own father. I can’t imagine the pain you and your family are going through, I am truly sorry. May God give your family peace and healing from the pain.

My friendship with Robert and Vicki dates back to my first year in college in 1967, when Robert and I and several others formed the “Lee Club.” (No particular purpose, just silly fun). The words that come to mind when I think of Robert are: He had a really good heart. He now joins many other I look forward to seeing again on the other side. David Sholl
