Robear Breton has been a mason all his life. Born in Senegal, a country in Africa that has the continents most western tip., in the capital Dakar during the time when Senegal was still a French colony. His family moved back to France for his schooling years. After learning about masonry work from his uncle at seventeen, he eventually immigrated to America where he started his own masonry business. We got to know Robear through other Brickman's Hall of Fame inductee Bill Deal, as both lived and worked in the Fort Worth area. Soon after, Robear took on masonry staining as part of his masonry business, and has had runaway success doing so. We are proud to enter Robear into the Brickman's Hall of Fame, as a shining example of what the American dream means to us all.
We ask all of our inductees to choose a nonprofit organization or charity, so that if people feel moved to donate they can. Robear chose the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation whose mission is to help find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation, and prevent child victimization. NCMEC works with families, victims, private industry, law enforcement, and the public to assist with preventing child abductions, recovering missing children, and providing services to deter and combat child sexual exploitation.
