Robert was a member of Gateway Country Music Association, a lifetime member of VFW and a member of American Legion in Warrenton. He retired from General Motors. Bob was known for his great sense of humor. He never forgot a joke, and once you met him you'd always remember your interaction with him. He enjoyed John Wayne movies and the Lonesome Dove series. He loved watching Cardinal baseball, fishing with the grandkids, riding horses and motorcycles. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
