Robert was the 2012 Farmer of the Year, and all who knew and loved him knew how much he loved farming. He was on the Board of Directors for both the Tuscaloosa Farmers Federation and the Tuscaloosa Co-op. Robert was faithful to New Hope Church as long as possible; he loved his church family and friends. One very special friend and main caregiver throughout it all was Mrs. Beverly Hughes with the loving support of her husband, Bryan Hughes. Beverly helped Robert have the best quality of life possible until the very end, and his family will be forever grateful to her.
Robert Nuckols will be remembered for his love of farming, his strong determination, and he will be greatly missed by family and friends.
