After his schooling he was drafted into the U.S. Army. He was honorably discharged from service in June of 1958.

He married Vera Kaseman on April 2, 1961 in Aberdeen, SD. They made their home on a farm at Scatterwood Lake. Together, they farmed until his ill health forced his semi-retirement several years ago.
Robert enjoyed hunting and fishing. He especially loved his grandchildren and the time he spent with them. They will always remember his bets of the "biggest malted milk shake." He was active in his community as well by serving on the Union Township Board and the Cresbard School Board. He was a past ember of the Yelduz Shrine Chanters and the Blue Lodge Masons.
