Robert Stuart Hirsch, 47, was the first born, named for his father and great-grandfather. He was a gifted artist who filled his parent’s home with art, family portraits and a great deal of love. He was particularly fond of his mother and she in turn loved him dearly. LSU and the Saints were his teams and Cajun food his passion. A lifelong model airplane enthusiast he was constantly building such for the sheer joy of it and often gave away models to young kids. His dad and brother will miss his infectious and spirited laugh and how he readily helped others. Gregarious would describe him well.
He is survived by his father Bob, brother Chuck and nephews Wiley and Cole and his two ever faithful companions Oskie and Jack.
We will miss him greatly and think of him every day.
He is with God and his recently passed mother Dixie, of that we are sure. And, we will rejoice because we know he and his mother are now at peace and reside in Heaven together.
Services celebrating Rob’s life will be held in conjunction with his mother’s service at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at Matthews Funeral Home Chapel with interment to follow at Gracelawn Cemetery.
