He began working at Cross Western Wear in 1972 until its’ closing. He began as a saddle makers apprentice and worked his way to be the best master saddle maker-period. After the store closing he continued his mastery out of his home. In his youth, he enjoyed the competition of rodeos to no benefit of his own body. Robert has friended every cowboy in the state and ya’ll know who we are talking about. He enjoyed hunting and fishing with friends and family.

I saw you almost everyday for 4 years and everyday you came in with a smile on your face and a joke to make me smile. If I was having a bad day I could always count on you to make me smile. Thank you for always being such a bright part of my day.

Thank You Robert Covey for all you have meant to me and touching mine and all others who knew you. You will be missed my friend but never forgotten.

Robert was always smiling with a happy heart. He was kind and respectable to all people. He was so funny, we were always cracking up when he was around, good company. The last time I saw him was with Sheldon at Winco and I'm so glad! When we parted I said it was so good to see you and I'm glad I did. Cross' were so lucky to have him as an employee. Those puppy eyes and that smile well be missed, until we all meet again. We love you Robert. Kathey (Kley) Sprouse and Eddie Sprouse
