After discovering the true meaning of love their courtship grew to become a great union on July 30, 1962. Bringing four beautiful children into this world. Robert hard work and dedication to his family led him to working as a machinist throughout his life. With the love for his family, he made unforgettable memories that would last a lifetime.
Robert was a devoted husband and father, who enjoyed old Chevrolet trucks. The passion for these old trucks brought joy to his soul. Just to have a conversation with him about an old Chevy would brighten up his day. To him there was nothing more articulate than a 1949/50 Chevy truck. Just knowing that his passion will not be forgotten. When you see an old Chevy think of Robert.
