Robert is survived by his wife of 53 years, Toni, and three daughters: Nicole Allamon (Chris) of St Augustine, Florida, Beth Jackson (Jeremy) of St Augustine, Florida, and Emily Pait of Lexington, Kentucky. Robert was a proud grandfather to five grandchildren: Kyle Holsclaw Jr., Jacob Jackson, Marissa Jackson, Ava Allamon, and Charlotte Allamon.

Robert was born in Hamlet, North Carolina, the youngest of four children to Richard and Nancy Pait. He is survived by siblings, Richard Pait Jr. of Hamlet, North Carolina, and Carol Christenbury of Cary, North Carolina, and predeceased by his brother, Russell Pait of Hamlet, North Carolina.
