During Robert’s school years, he lived in Salem, and Sweet Home, Oregon. He moved to Nebraska when he was 18 and then moved back to Salem when he was 20. Robert became a father at 19. His son will say he was a loving father who was stern and steadfast. He pushed you to be the best you can be. He always believed in people and the ability they have.
