Robert Lee Mulkey (Fat Rob) was born on October 3, 1985, in Detroit, Michigan to Gladys Davis and Robert Dennis Mulkey. He was born at Plymouth General Hospital. Robert was educated in the Detroit Public School System.
Robert’s birth was the surprise that none of his siblings knew they needed. He was a happy baby who loved to laugh with those rosy cheeks. From the beginning, he was a daring child, not fearful of anything. His courage was relentless. Rob would jump off furniture, downstairs, etc. because he was “Bad” like LL Cool J. As he aged, so did his sense of humor. By the time he went to middle school, he had become the class clown. He loved to laugh and make everyone laugh too. Ms. Gladys spent many days at the schools because of Rob’s hilarious behavior. He would tell her was bored. He had such a personality that by the time the conferences were over the teachers would be on his side.
Robert developed a love style at a young age. He would undress if he didn’t like the outfit you put on him. He would pull all the clothes out of the drawer until he found what he wanted to wear. Then he would model his outfit for you with a huge smile. As he entered high school, he developed a finesse for style and coordination. Every night, he spent time picking out the perfect outfit, including shoes, so that he was ready for school in the morning. Often, he would re-iron, because he couldn’t have any wrinkles. He loved fashion and didn’t care how much it cost. Jordans was his shoe of choice. He would even call Alyssa from the hospital to get him the latest editions. If they didn’t have them in Detroit, he would call Tiffany in New York or Valerie in Chicago to go on the hunt. He didn’t go anywhere without his Buffs on and his jewelry. Let’s not forget how good he smelled. Like father like sons. His boys had to be fly just like him. He even kept a change of clothes for the boys. Everyone knew that his greatest loves in life were his momma, Alyssa and his sons Skylar and Lil Rob!
On Tuesday, March 31, 2020, the Lord decided to grant him his wings. He was preceded in death by his father Robert Dennis Mulkey and Nephew Edward Davis III.
