Robert attended Howland Schools, and was a self-taught carpenter and mechanic. He built a home with his own two hands and was able to complete just about any auto repair. He was employed at General Motors Lordstown for 30 years until he was fortunate enough to take an early retirement in his early 50’s. He did not let that opportunity pass him by. After building a duplex, on his own, he decided to revisit his youth and a buy a motorcycle. He became an active member of the GWRRA(Gold Wing Riders) where he spent years exploring the countryside and accomplished visiting every state in the continental United States.

He spent many Tuesday evenings at Candywood with his golf buddies and never turned down an opportunity to spend a day on the course. After moving to Farmdale, he became a member of The Moose Lodge where he enjoyed many evenings of good food, friends, and dancing with the ladies. Bob was also a Corporal in The United States Marine Corps from 1958-1962.
