Robert is preceded in death by his father, John Frederick Ruckhaber, Sr.; maternal grandmother, Shirley Garcia; paternal grandparents, Winefred and William Charles Ruckhaber.

Well known in the New Orleans area as a limo driver and mechanic for over 30 years, few could claim to be as loyal of a patron as Ruck was to the Tic-Toc Cafe. He will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
