Robert grew up in Chicago and lived there until 1959. He lived in Kansas City for 34 years, retiring there after working for the New York Life Insurance Company, and then moved to Highlands Ranch, where he spent his last 18 years with his wife and family.

He served in the Army Air Force during World War II as a field photographer and a trainer for the Normandy invasion bombardiers. He was honorably discharged in 1945. Robert enjoyed playing golf, and coached youth baseball teams.

He was married to his beloved wife, Darleen for 60 years. They loved to travel and spend time with their children and grandchildren. Robert was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather who loved his family and country.

He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
