Robert Lee Rief Jr.


Jr's life began on May 2, 1965 in Fort Benning, GA. Jr was a collector of many treasures. He collected signs, antique tools, license plates, and friends throughout his life.  Everyone knew his catch phrase "My good looking buddy" when he would see a friend and he loved his cats.  Jr enjoyed working with his hands and BBQing , always with the music playing.  He was sure to wave at everyone passing by his home Jr wanted to see everyone smiling. He is survived by his daughter Kimberly Love Losee and Son in-law Fred Losee of Herington, as well as his son Joshua Daniel Ford "Rief" and daughter in law Chrissy Ford of Woodbine; grandchildren Vanessa, Jacob, Addison, Hunter, Josh Jr., Davina, Tristan and Anthony and many good friends.
