Robert was an auto mechanic for over 45 years, he was proud of the work that he did and got many awards for his work. After retiring he would putter in his garage, woodworking and fixing things. He loved being at the river and spending time there. His family was very important to him, his children and grandchildren were the light in his eyes. He was a great story teller. Also after retiring he started to collect gnomes, more to bug his wife, if anything. All through his life, he was an avid race car fan who would give his kids money to leave him alone during a race. He loved his racing!
