Robert also had two beloved dogs. He interned many years to become a Class A Machine Builder. He worked for Greenlee twelve years and W.A. Whitney for many years. Robert spent a few years traveling for business out of town and also spent six weeks in China a month before he married Jan to work on machinery. Robert loved God, his Country, his Family and his flag. Robert expressed great patriotism for his country despite not serving for his country. Robert died as he lived. When the end of his life was nearing he chose to leave this earthly life on his terms. If Robert were here today he would like to thank each and every one for the palliative care and his Agrace Team. Robert would want to thank his nurse (Sarah) and his social worker (Julie) for helping him on his new journey to Heaven.
