Robert was a prolific man with many tastes and hobbies. He was a long time member of The Lima Garden Club where he showcased his love of all things flora. He had a passion for woodworking and making things with his hands. He spent many years as a volunteer fire fighter for Perry Township Fire Department. He also dedicated himself to his work at Meadow Gold Dairy where he was a salesman, and Roundy’s where he retired as a warehouse worker. Above all else, Robert loved spending time with his family.
