It is with great sorrow that friends and family announce the passing of, Robert James Loucks Jr, long time resident of Miami Springs. He left this world suddenly on August 22, 2022, at the age of 48.
Robert grew up in Miami Springs spreading joy and laughter to all who knew him as a young adult. He was known for being part of the comedic duo “Robert and Carlos”.

innovators in using video to capture and create humorous stories that engaged the entire school, including teachers and administrators. Robert was a central part of social gatherings and always had a joke to tell or a hug to give.

We pray the Lord gives Robert’s family the strength they need during this difficult time. I hope they know Robert left a fond memory in the hearts of so many.
