Everyone’s life is replete with a wide diversity of experiences. Certainly, many of us are not what we thought we would be (or where) when we were children. Quite naturally, RB is no exception. He wanted to be a rock star.
Born September 6, 1954 in Brooklyn, N.Y. to Hewitt and Rose Roberts, he was their “Evil Genius.” But to his only brother and sister, he was just a “cry baby.”
On occasion, RB’s father would take him on projects he had lined up with residents of private homes. Those were magical experiences for the boy.
He knew, even then, that there was really something so special about being in your own home that it was worth looking after, fighting for, and preserving. Little did he know that those times were just the cornerstones for who he is today ….. and where.
