    I worked with Robert at Zulily he would relieve me in the guard shack on saturday morning and we would joke around some. I also would talk to him when he was a guard at sear wearhouse when I would come in to pick up my load when I drove semi.I will sure miss him he was a wonderful man.But REMEMBER HE IS MORE ALIVE NOW THEN HE HAS EVER BEEN.

    I sincerely send my condolences out to all those that have been affected by the crossing over of Robert Lockett. He was my roommate when we were stationed at Fort Bragg, NC my first duty station. We had tons of fun. I’m glad to hear that he was on the LORD’S SIDE. I can only imagine the wiggle how stated he did when he would sing with the men, I bet it was same one he used to do when we lived in the 3rd House off post right across from base. May GOD STRENGTHEN, GUIDE, PROTECTION and COMFORT you all at such a time as this. GOD BLESS YOU ALL. ~~~GODSPEED~~~
