Robert was a jack of all trades and held many occupations over the years. He mainly farmed all of his life, but also had other endeavors. He had a Barber Shop in town for several years in the seventies, was a meat cutter at several different stores, and a mechanic at Caroline Country Club. He loved farming the most and enjoyed being on the farm.
In his spare time, he enjoyed golfing with family and friends, and loved attending auctions. Robert could build or fix just about anything. Even visiting another state, he would run into someone he knew. He never knew a stranger and loved helping people. He was quite the jokester and was known for his "Bob jokes". He enjoyed a good laugh or prank. Robert will be remembered as a great friend to everyone, a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather.
