At age 11 my son Robert Jr. was diagnosed Bipolar and has been fighting the demons ever since. Anyone who knows about this illness understand how strong these demons can be at times.

Robert was a very caring individual, always helping others before his own needs. And always with a smile. Even in death, as an organ donor, Robert continues to give.

About three months ago, Robert decided to embark on a new adventure. He titled it “The Missouri Project.” As much as he hated being away from his family and friends, his excitement for life continued as he learned new skills such as chopping wood, clearing land, fishing, purchasing livestock, etc.

On March 21, 2015, the demons won and my son Robert Jr. went to be with our Lord.

Due to the many requests on how people can help our family during this time of crisis, we have set up this fund.

Robert A Vento, Jr. Memorial Fund

In an effort to continue his mission to put others first, any excess monies will be used to create a foundation to help others as Robert did.

Thank you all for your support and continued prayers.
