He is also survived by his fraternal grandparents Robert M. and Barbara Hanson of Milford and many loving uncles, aunts and cousins. Though his name was Robert, he was affectionately known as “Bubba”, “Bubberton” and “Bobby”. Bobby was a special person, who was born with Tuberous Sclerosis a genetic debilitating disease. Regardless of the challenges of this disease Bobby was a special person with a unique personality…he was pure love. For those who had the privilege to be part of his life he let you know how much he loved you by his “ huge beautiful smiles”, contagious laugh and some of the hilarious antics he would pull off or simply by taking your hand and holding it. We will always thank God for the time he allowed Bobby to be in our lives.
