Robert and his wife moved from Memphis Tennessee to Tempe in 1978. Therefore, they have lived in Arizona for the majority of their lives. They have two sons (and daughter in-laws), three grandsons, two granddaughters and a dog named Buddy Boy. Some guys Robert worked with shortly after he moved here started calling him “Tennessee” because of his “accent”. That name stuck with him for many, many years thereafter. Robert has been in the construction business since 1978, with the majority of his background in the carpentry realm. He truly enjoys building custom homes more than anything He's ever done! He brings a positive attitude and passion to our team here at Starwood.
HOW DO YOU ENJOY SPENDING YOUR FREE TIME?
My favorite summertime activity is hanging out at the pool with our kids, grandkids, and/or some of our friends. I also love to smoke meats, and cook on the grill. I love playing golf, camping, and just generally doing anything outdoors. My wife and I are HUGE Arizona Cardinals fans, so if it has anything to do with the Cards, we are interested.
WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
When I was a little kid, I used to love to sweat. Yes, I would do things like put on a coat in the middle of summer, and go sit in the hot car for a while until I was sweating profusely. We had a family reunion last summer, and my brothers and sister were still talking and laughing about that! To this day, I’d much rather be hot than cold.
