Robert was proud to have been born, and spent most of his life in Three Springs, Kentucky.  The past 12 years he had called Lebanon, Tennessee home where he created friendships that had become invaluable to him.  He was, most recently, a team member at Amazon in Lebanon.

He was preceded in death by his father, T.F. Chaney, his mother, Emily Ogden Chaney and his brother, John Thomas Chaney.

I called Robert "huggy bear" because he gave the best hugs in the world.  He could brighten any day and always made me laugh.  Heaven will be a more wonderful place because you are there.

Sure wish I was closer.  I'd love to come home to see you one last time.  Enjoy Heaven with John and your folks and hug your Mama for me.  You've been missed all of these years, and will continue to be missed friend.  Until we meet again.
