Robert Daniel Yates, 33, of De Kalb, Texas passed away Saturday, August 31, 2019 at a local nursing-rehab center.

Robert is survived by his mother and stepdad, Tammy and Eric Newton of Mart, Texas; a sister, brother-in-law and nephew, Temecia, David and D.J. Hamilton of San Antonio, Texas; his grandmother, Betty Litton of Waco, Texas. He is also survived by his aunts and their spouses, Candye and Robert Finigan of Arkansas, Penney Tidwell of De Kalb, Texas and Debbie and Robert Crouch, Sr. of Oak Grove, Texas; an uncle and his wife, Steven and Trish Litton of De Kalb, Texas; and several cousins to which he was very close.

Robert was preceded in death by his grandfather, David Eugene Litton; a special uncle, John Moles and his uncle, Larry Tidwell.

Robert was a person of his own self. About as stubborn as a mule and that’s what made us love him. He loved pitt bulls. They brought so much joy to his life. Robert will be so deeply missed.

Memorial Services will be held at a later date. Cremation under the direction of Bates Family Funeral Home in De Kalb, Texas.
