Robert proudly served over twenty years in the United States Army in the Airborne Infantry. He had a contagious laugh and always enjoyed making others laugh as well. Robert and his wife, Phyllis, were soul mates, best friends, and inseparable. They met while serving in the Army and had an "Airborne wedding" at Fort Benning, Georgia where after their vows were exchanged and the prayer was prayed, the entire wedding party - all sixteen of them including the chaplain- jumped out of the plane with their parachutes! He was a wonderful, loving husband, father, and papa and cherished spending time with his family. Robert was a Big Foot enthusiast who attended Big Foot conferences, and enjoyed oil paintings, puzzle books, Western movies, wrestling, and listening to music with his son, Chase.

Preceding Robert in death are his parents; maternal grandparents, Albert and Mary Martin; paternal grandmother, Francis Card; and four grandchildren: Gunner, Matielyn, Rhyan, and Dillon.
