Robert J. Carpenter Jr., 61, formerly of Racine, went to join Jesus in his new eternal home on Sunday.  Robert was born in Milwaukee on August 12, 1956,and was the son of the late Robert and Virginia (nee: Wolski) Carpenter Sr.  He will be remembered for his feisty and charming personality, and his quick wit and ready smile.

Robert will be dearly missed by his siblings, Daniel (Bobbie) Carpenter of Bowie, Texas, Joy (David) Crain) of New Palestine, Indiana, Carol LaRue of Utopia, Texas; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. In addition to his parents, Robert was also preceded in death by his sister Brenda.

A warm informal gathering of family and friends will be held at the West Lawn Memorial Park Chapel on Saturday at 11 a.m. Interment will follow.

The family extends a special thank you to all the community support and caregivers through the years for enriching Robert’s life and providing all their loving and compassionate care.
