Robert developed a strong work ethic and a passion for vehicles, inspired by watching his father work on engines.

With a heart full of love for his family, Robert enjoyed spending quality time with his wife, children, and grandchildren, creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime.

Robert's love for music and passion for entertaining shone through when he played the accordion for his family, bringing joy and laughter to those around him. He served in the Army reserves and consistently displaying his uncompromised pride for his country, Robert was often seen wearing his patriotic cap, a symbol of his unwavering patriotism.
