The True Life Story of Robert Thor.
Robert Thor had no idea what a strange journey his life would be. Born into a loving family in the heart of the Bronx, New York, then moving to the Gulf Coast of Florida, Robert led a happy and nearly charmed life. His deeply religious upbringing gave him the strength to weather any storm; that is until he and his wife were introduced to Lou Pearlman, the con man of all con men.
Lou is best known for the creation of the boy bands, The Backstreet Boys and NSYNC. What people didn’t know was that he created a Ponzi scheme that cost unwitting investors nearly half a billion dollars to fund his musical endeavors.
This book chronicles Robert’s idyllic family life and nearly rags to riches story, all of which came tumbling down when he unwittingly became embroiled in one of the largest Ponzi schemes in American History.
His story is one of intrigue, deception, pain, and loss but ultimately of triumph, redemption, and the power of love. All of this led him to his life’s mission, helping the less fortunate in places like Cuba and Nicaragua.
Robert, or Thor as he prefers to be called, spent the first part of his boyhood days on the streets of the Bronx. His family moved to Clearwater Florida after a short stay in Puerto Rico and he is still a Clearwater resident.
Thor is a self-made man who learned his skills in financial planning though self-education and on the job training.
He loves sports, music, and dance and loves life near the beach. Since the involvement with Lou Pearlman and the Ponzi scheme and the subsequent dissolvement of his marriage he focuses most of his energy on his beloved daughters, family, friends, and church.
His favorite day is Sunday when he fetches his father from the nursing home to attend church with his mom, his brother Henry and their friends.
Thor’s great passion is helping others. He makes regular trips to Cuba to bring aide to the people there. He is also focused on helping his clients achieve approval for Medicaid which brings great relief to the families whose loved ones are in nursing homes. A portion of the earnings of Long Term Care Qualifications goes to missions in Nicaragua and Cuba.
He has been a pioneer in Advanced Directives. You can find information on his website at www.longtermcarequalifications.com. There are forms there that a person can download for free for Advanced Directives which consist of Power of Attorney, Healthcare Surrogate, and Living Will.
Thor has worked with the employees of over 60 nursing homes in obtaining and executing Advanced Directive forms over the last 8 years.
