Robert, or "Bob" as he was known by his friends, spent his early years as a route delivery driver and truck driver in Chicago, Illinois then Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He owned and operated a salvage yard and used car lot in Jonesville, Michigan for many years. He continued truck driving while living in West Manchester, Ohio for several years. Later, he sold trailers in Quincy, Michigan before moving to Texas to be near family.
Those who knew him were quickly stuck by his gregarious personality. He was the kind of person who never met a stranger, had a great sense of humor, and always has a story to tell.
He will be buried next to his wife at Oak Grove Cemetery in Coldwater, Michigan.
