Robert L. Phair was a lifetime resident of the Lummi Nation. Growing up, he enjoyed family gatherings, playing softball with his family, and living life with a huge smile and joyous laugh. His children always recall him taking a cruise around the horn jamming out. As his mother enjoyed sitting with him at Portage. His sisters remember him casino hopping where she would find him at “The Skag”. When he was home his fur baby Heaven was not too far from his side. Robert’s final days were spent at home with his mother Ardellina and family who loved him dearly. As he peacefully entered heaven, he was happy, he lived a happy beautiful life as a fisherman and family man.
