Here to carry on his memory is his adoring wife, Sonya Purcell; his mother Mary Glore; his children Renee Purcell, Rachel Villagomez (Sergio); Ronnie Drake, and Brandon Drake; his grandchildren Kaitlyn Allen (Elizabeth Ladle), Daniela Olvera (Jon Rogers).

Robert prided himself as a family man at heart. His favorite thing in the world was spending time with his family, especially all of his grandbabies. A veteran of the truck tire business since 1970, he knew the industry inside out and more importantly, he made great working relationships with everyone along the way. A hobby of his was collecting, mostly to do with anything Americana including knives, flags, and pictures. He also enjoyed decorating the house with images of the Lord's Supper, the Lord's Prayer, as well as the plaques of his favorite Bible verses and angel figurines watching over.
A memorial visitation will be held on Thursday, January 26, 2023, from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM at Louisville Memorial Gardens East, 11601 Ballardsville Road. A graveside service in Robert’s honor will follow immediately at 2:00 PM in Louisville Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
