Robert was a devoted Christian. He was a long-time member of St. Andrews Lutheran Church in St. Paul Park and most recently a member of Christ the Lord Lutheran Church in Cottage Grove. He loved planting his vegetable garden and sharing the crops with the neighbors. Robert enjoyed watching old westerns, traveling, especially to Colorado, and spending time with his family. He was a quiet man but could be a jokester at times.
He will be dearly missed.
