Pop always made holiday celebrations fun! My children and I have fond memories of celebrating the 4th of July in his backyard, playing water volleyball, and celebrating the new year with costumes and fireworks! Pop had a youthful spirit which was infectious! He will be deeply missed by us! We love the Finch Family so much! You are in our thoughts and prayers! Sandra, Brittney, and Joshua Stone

Thoughts and prayers to the Finch family. Growing up on the North End, the Finch backyard was a ball field for so many of us in the summer with Robert joining in, instructing, just showing his care for all the neighborhood kids. Such great memories to treasure with a fine man being a great example to all of us of how to act and treat one another. Over the years seeing Robert at church, at Reid's House, or on the street he would always brighten your day. Robert was a leader by example, respected by so many he took time with, a true friend that will be missed but also rejoicing knowing he is home with the Lord. Ray Carter
